Value Added Tax (VAT)

This is the European Union (EU) wide sales tax. The rates vary between the member countries but the VAT can be taken off if we are shipping goods out of the EU, for instance to the USA. The rate at 20% is quite significant and it can go a good way to offsetting the shipping charge itself. Books and certain foods do not attract VAT. However this means that you might be liable for import duties in your country when the goods arrive at customs. We cannot be held responsible for whether the goods are checked by customs or any local import taxes that may be applied. 

Foreign Exchange Rates

The US $ and Euro rates we display are indicative only. The actual rate used is decided by your credit card provider. If in doubt please consult them.
