Summary of My Selling Policies
PaymentWe accept most payment methods. Paypal is preferred, for purchases under £250.00, and we also accept all major debit/credit cards, bank to bank transfers, cheques (allowing up to 10 working days to clear), bank drafts, plus most other legitimate/reasonable methods of payment.
FeesUK Value Added Tax is included in the final price of the Item(s) purchased; however, if you reside outside the EEC, and your purchase is exported directly outside the EEC, then you will not be liable for EEC VAT at 20%. Thus this excess charge will be deducted from your parts total by dividing your purchase total price by 1.2 to remove the VAT.
Also, if you are within the EEC VAT scheme, and provide your EEC VAT registration number, then the same reduction in purchase total may apply.

Local import duties are not covered in our quotes and we advise that you check such liabilities before you place your bid if you are unsure.
Please contact/inform us if you feel you qualify for EEC VAT exemption, and, if appropriate, we will adjust your invoice to remove the EEC VAT content, plus raise appropriate export documentation if required.
