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.
