VAT Free Purchases

Overview

All customers from outside the EU can buy VATable products ex VAT both online and in-store. VAT applies to all new products (except printed materials such as sheet music, facsimiles and books). VAT (value added tax) is currently 20% in the UK.

Calculating VAT

All our prices are shown including VAT both online and in-store. To calculate the ex VAT price of a VATable product divide the price by 1.2. For example:

Mollenhauer Denner Sopranino Recorder - £185. Ex VAT price = £185/1.2 = £154.17.

Online customers

All overseas customers (outside the EU) can purchase VATable products without paying VAT. Our website automatically removes VAT from your order after you select your shipping address at the checkout.

For example the following order to a country outside the EU would be amended as follows:

 

Items Total ordered Total charged ex VAT
Mollenhauer Denner Sopranino in boxwood 

£185

£154.17
Handel: Complete Recorder Sonatas £25 £25
Shipping £19.50 £19.50
Order total £229.50 £198.67

 

 

In-store customers

Any overseas customer (outside the EU) buying VATable products in-store can claim back VAT. The VAT must be paid at the time of the order and can be claimed back at customs. For further details speak to our team in-store who can assist.
