Who can and how to order Value Added Tax free?
All prices include 19% German Value Added Tax (VAT). Customers from a non-European-Union-country and commercial dealers from a country of the European union (except Germany) can order VAT-free. Additionally a valid VAT Identification number has to be send before or during the order process by commercial dealers. If you are among one of the both groups above who can order VAT-free please read and follow the below steps carefully.
During the order process and in an email after your purchase the VAT will still be shown and calculated to the total amount by the shop system. You will receive an actualized invoice showing net-prices without 19% VAT during 24 hours after your order. In this case please do not make your payment before you received the actualized invoice with the actual total amount! Additionally it is important that you choose money order / transfer as payment method during the order process even if you want to pay by paypal. You will have the possibility to pay by paypal later after you received an email with the new actual amount. If you choose paypal as payment method during the order process, you will be redirected to paypal and will only have the possibility to pay the total amount including VAT and if that process is cancelled your order will be deleted. So please choose money order / transfer as payment method and await the new invoice with the actual amount. Within that mail you also get the account details for paying with paypal or by money order.
How much can be saved when ordering VAT free?
All prices in the shop include 19% German Value Added Tax (VAT). If you are among one of the both groups (see above) who can order VAT free you can save the VAT amount.
The net price excluding VAT is calculated by dividing the article price through 1,19.
100,00 Euro article price / 1,19 = 84,03 Euro net price
19% of 84,03 Euro net price = 15,97 Euro VAT
Please keep in mind that there may be import taxes or customs in your country if you are located outside the European Union.
