VAT, SALES TAX AND VAT-EXEMPT ORDERS
The current UK VAT rate is 20%. This will be included on all orders delivered to an address in the UK.
Channel Islands orders are VAT exempt – to ensure that this is processed correctly, please set your delivery country to Jersey or Guernsey rather than the United Kingdom.
Handover are registered for local sale tax in a number of other countries.
Norway is subject to 25% VAT
Australia is subject to 10% sales tax.
The Rest of World (RoW) & USA orders are exempt from VAT and Sales Tax, however, you may be asked to pay local tax and customs charges when the goods arrive in the destination country. Please check locally for levels and tariffs.
FOR CUSTOMERS IN THE EU
From 28 August 2021 we implemented a system called IOSS (Import One Stop Shop), which allows us to collect VAT on orders to the EU below 150 euros. The 150 euro threshold is calculated before adding VAT and carriage (though VAT is calculated using the total including the carriage).
This will mean that orders will pass through customs smoothly and quickly and we can once again use lower cost postal delivery services. The VAT collected will be added at checkout at the VAT rate for the country you are shipping the goods into.
Orders below €150 (euros)
Between 0 and €149.99 (excluding postage) – Yes VAT and No Duty
VAT is not added to your goods total, but an equivalent amount is added to the shipping costs.
Customers should not be required to pay any additional charges to Customs – if they request an additional VAT payment, please contact our Customer Services team on [email protected].
Orders over €150 (euros)
Over €150, with all goods from the EU and or UK – Yes VAT and Possible Duty (customers may be required to pay additional charges to Customs on goods that originate from outside of the EU or UK).
VAT will be charged at customs, not collected by Handover at any point.
VAT registered customers in the EU are advised to contact us directly on [email protected].
Please Note: Due to changes in international tax regulations and thresholds, we have been required to start adding tax to our sales in a number of countries and states, and to charge new rates in some others. When these taxes have been charged, the amount is visible under the Basket Total section at checkout. Please note that these rates are set by the country or state and will change only as a result of legislation by the tax jurisdiction in question.
For more detailed VAT information, please contact our Customer Service team on [email protected].
