All prices quoted exclude VAT. Currently, orders collected from the Imaging Services counter are exempt from VAT.

For all other transactions customers based in the European Union must comply with the VAT and statistical reporting routine for the EU single market and we therefore need your VAT number for our records.  If you have not told us your VAT number, we are required to charge you VAT at 20%. VAT is charged at point of paying NOT at point of placing order. VAT is not charged to Customers based outside the European Union. You will be prompted for your VAT number as part of the ordering process.

Orders can be made using our online order form, or alternatively by fax or post. The minimum charge for material in such cases is £10.00. If orders are to be posted, additional charges are made for postage and packing. In some cases a service charge of 15% is required if material has to be prepared before imaging.

DEBIT/ CREDIT CARDS - card details must be given before the order can be processed. We are hoping to implement an online payment system in the near future - in the meantime if you wish to pay by credit card we need your card number, expiry date, start date & issue number if available, security number and the billing address for the card. You can telephone or fax this information, PLEASE DO NOT E-MAIL THE DETAILS. We accept Mastercard and Visa. The information will be stored securely and the card charged when the copies are ready for despatch. Tel 01223 765741, fax 01223 339684.
