The United Kingdom formally exited from the European Union on 1st Jan 2021.
As part of the recently agreed trading agreement, there is no longer a need for the United Kingdom to collect VAT on sales to EU customers. The VAT on Spares and other Purchases is reduced from 20% to 0%. This brings you into line with customers from the Rest of the World.
We are obliged to publish prices in our online shop inclusive of VAT since the majority of our sales are to the UK.
However, if you are in the EU (or the RoW ) and purchase something, the VAT will be automatically deducted from your purchase price and carriage when you checkout the Shop.
Note that this does not apply to Club memberships or renewals which are already zero-rated for VAT. These prices will therefore remain the same.
However, Customs Authorities at the border to the EU Country now have the rights to level import Duty and the equivalent of VAT to the goods before release to the end customer. The customer is liable for these charges and they are outside the control of the Club.
