Do I have to pay Value Added Tax (VAT)?

IMPORTANT!   Changes in VAT rates for shipments to consumers in EU-countries as per 1st July 2021

You are a consumer in one of the EU-countries?
In accordance with the new VAT EU rules as per 1st July 2021, we have to charge VAT rate applicable in the destination country for deliveries to consumers (B2C) in EU countries. This ensures that VAT is paid in the country where the consumption of goods and services takes place. Because the VAT rate can be different in EU countries, this means that  retail prices incl. VAT may differ for the various EU countries.

As soon as the website recognizes the visitor's country, retail prices incl. VAT applicable will appear. Default is 21% VAT for The Netherlands.

You have a company in one of the EU-countries
Shipments to companies inside EU-countries (except for The Netherlands and Germany), VAT will be deducted. Before initial ordering online you have to register as a new customer on our website with a valid VAT-ID-Number. This number has to match name and (shipping) address as registered at the Tax Authorities in your country. After one time manual check (during office hours), the VAT percentage will be corrected to 0% on your account in our system. After login on our site, from that moment on all prices are shown excluding VAT and items will also be charged accordingly.

Important !
If this procedure has not been followed before ordering online, then automatically VAT will be shown on the cart and charged for. We cannot correct this afterwards. The only possibility to get the VAT reimbursed afterwards is to apply for it at the Dutch resp. German Tax Authorities directly.

Consumers/companies outside EU-countries
Only for shipments to consumers/companies outside EU-countries VAT will be deducted. These customers pay Import Duties/VAT at Customs in country of destination.
