Prices, VAT & Payment
Our website displays two prices in GBP, one excluding VAT (for worldwide, outside EU countries) and one including UK VAT at 20%. Orders shipped to certain EU countries will be charged EU VAT at that country's prevailing rate - please see 'VAT' below - but this will not be shown until checkout when the destination is entered.
The cost of Shipping
and packing is not included in our Parts prices - this is shown separately at the end of the order (excluding oversized export orders which are quoted for on an individual basis).
All orders will be invoiced and charged in GBP. Please be aware that when you use a translation program to translate our website, it will not translate/convert the price correctly. Any prices shown in US Dollars, Euros or other currency are subject to exchange rate fluctuations and are intended for guidance only and cannot be assumed to be wholly accurate. All goods are sold subject to the price ruling at the time of invoicing.
VAT & Australia/New Zealand GST
Residents of the UK and most EU countries pay 20% UK VAT (sales tax) on parts and shipping. Due to EU legislation, where we exceed the export threshold to a country, VAT will be charged at that country's prevailing rate. UK VAT is charged at 20% on EU shipped orders except in the following countries; Austria 20%, Belgium 21%, Denmark 25%, Finland 24%, France 20%, Germany 16%, Ireland 23%, Italy 22%, Netherlands 21%, Norway 25%, Portugal 23%, Portugal Azores 18%, Portugal Madeira 22%, Spain 21%, Sweden 25%. Our EU VAT number will be shown on the invoice.
Note that books and manuals are generally zero rated for VAT purposes.
For EU businesses who are VAT registered, we require your VAT number and official order to export at VAT exempt prices.
GST will be charged for Australia (10%) and New Zealand (15%) on parts and shipping for orders up to AUD/NZD $1000. For orders over $1000.01, the GST charge will be removed before payment and shipping occurs. GST is then charged & collected by customs upon entry to the country. For GST registered businesses, the charge is removed from the order. GST will be displayed as “VAT” on the checkout page.
For Worldwide (outside the EU) orders sent direct from our premises, VAT is not charged. However, any local import duty, taxes or customs clearance are not included in our prices and must be paid for by you, usually at the time of delivery by the carrier.
Visitors to our shop & sales counter from outside the EU can reclaim VAT (when leaving the country) using a VAT407 Reclaim Form which we can provide upon request. This form cannot be used for Mail Order transactions.
We accept all major credit, debit & charge cards for secure on-line payments. We also accept Paypal on orders where all the items are in stock. Orders can also be pre-paid by bank transfer (in GBP/Euro/US Dollar- please add £12.00 to cover bank charges). If you send cash or Rimmer Bros Vouchers, please use registered mail.
