Do I need to pay VAT?
Value Added Tax (VAT) is the sales tax in the United Kingdom where Malcolm! trades from. The current UK VAT rate is 20%.
The UK is (currently!) a member of the European Union (EU) and special rules around VAT apply to trading with other EU based businesses and EU based individuals.
Whether VAT is applicable to your purchase of Malcolm! and how we apply it can be summarised as follows:
If you are a UK customer (individual or business): we charge VAT at 20%
If you are an EU Business and supply a valid VAT number (we check it): we will not charge you any VAT
If you are an individual in the EU: we will charge you VAT at your local country VAT rate (details here - PDF)
If you are a company or an individual not in the UK or in the EU (eg you are in the USA or Australia): we will not charge you any VAT
