Do I have to pay VAT?

2 minute read • Last updated 2020-06-02

"VAT ("Value Added Tax" or purchase tax) is automatically applied to all purchases made by customers residing in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Customers not residing in one of the previously listed countries will not be liable for VAT/Tax when purchasing using any method. So if for example, you reside in the U.S. then the VAT will be removed at final checkout.

If you are a customer in one of the previously listed countries, are VAT/purchase tax registered and wish to defer payment of VAT, please enter your VAT ID before completing payment. These details will be cross-checked with the VIES VAT number validation system.

Astute Graphics Limited is VAT registered, registration number GB 924753804. This VAT registration information will also be provided on the VAT invoice you should automatically receive following payment. If you are tax registered in any of the previously listed countries, you should be able to reclaim the VAT amount via your company's tax returns. If in doubt, please ask your accountant or tax advisor.
