While you should ensure you are comfortable with all our Terms, here are our key sections:
You may buy goods offered online by us by completing the order form available on our website. To buy goods via our website, you must be at least 18 years of age. By placing an order, you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age and that all information you provide is accurate, complete and not misleading.
You agree to deal with us in good faith and in compliance with all applicable laws. We may cancel orders where we consider that you have not dealt with us in good faith or have otherwise breached applicable laws.
You must register with our website to be able to make purchases from our online store. Once you submit an order, you will receive confirmation call and delivery date and time will be agreed. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, at our discretion.
We may provide special offers in relation to our items from time to time. At any time, we may terminate any special offer without advance notice. If terminated, a special offer will continue to apply to items you ordered in good faith in accordance with these Terms before the special offer was terminated.
Tenders are time limited. Tenders offers are blind offers. You can place a tender offer on items in the main category Tenders. You may select an item you wish to make a tender offer on, you will see an "open price field". We have selected a low-price and a high-price. Tender offers must be selected between these two prices. Process your order as normal. The highest tender offer price on an item is the winning bidder. Orders on tenders are only binding if you are the highest tender bidder out all tender offers placed by all customers. You may make a tender offer as many times you like; we only take your highest tender price offered.
All prices published are in GBP (Pound Sterling) and are listed exclusive of UK VAT.
We accepts cash transactions on collection.
For security reasons we can handle cash transactions up to maximum of GBP 7,500.00 only.
Any money transaction higher than GBP7,500.00 a bank transfer is required.
VAT / TAX
Some of our customers are VAT/TAX exempt, you must state this when you receive an order confirmation call from us. We will adjust the invoice and send the new invoice out. For us to give a zero-rated VAT/TAX you must send us your documents which comply with the HMRC ruling 725 see at the bottom of the paragraph.
With the introduction of the Single Market, goods leaving the UK to go to other Member States are no longer called exports, but are referred to as dispatches or removals. The term ‘export’ is only used for goods leaving the UK to go to countries outside the EC. For information about exports, see Notice 703 VAT Export of goods from the United Kingdom.
Article 28C(A) of the EC Sixth Directive (77/388/EEC) states that Member States shall exempt certain supplies subject to conditions laid down for the purpose of ensuring the correct and straightforward application of such exemptions (zero-rating) and preventing any evasion, avoidance or abuse. The UK uses the term ‘zero-rating’ rather than ‘exemption’ used in EC law to avoid confusion with the use of exemption elsewhere in UK law.
The UK VAT law relating to the zero-rating of removals of goods for VAT purposes can be found in the Value Added Tax Act 1994 sections 30(8), 30(10) and regulation 134 of the Value Added Tax Regulations 1995.
When can a supply of goods be zero-rated?
(The text in italic has the force of law:)
A supply from the UK to a customer in another EC Member State is liable to the zero rate where:
• You obtain and show on your VAT sales invoice your customer’s EC VAT registration number, including the 2-letter country prefix code, and
• the goods are sent or transported out of the UK to a destination in another EC Member State, and
• you obtain and keep valid commercial evidence that the goods have been removed from the UK within the time limits.
You must not zero-rate a sale, even if the goods are subsequently removed to another Member State, if you:
Supply the goods to a UK VAT registered customer (unless that customer is also registered for VAT in another Member State. In such cases they must provide their EC VAT registration number and the goods must be removed to another EC Member State) deliver to, or allow the goods to be collected by, a UK customer at a UK address, or allow the goods to be used in the UK in the period between supply and removal, except where specifically authorised to do so.
Time limits for removal of goods and obtaining evidence of removal
(The text in italic has the force of law)
In all cases the time limits for removing the goods and obtaining valid evidence of removal will begin from the time of supply. For goods removed to another EC Member State the time limits are as follows:
• 3 months (including supplies of goods involved in groupage or consolidation prior to removal), or
• 6 months for supplies of goods involved in processing or incorporation prior to removal.
Goods removed to customers in other Member States after processing or incorporation
(The text in italic has the force of law)
When you make a supply of goods to a VAT registered customer in another Member State, but have to deliver them to a third person in the UK who is also making a taxable supply of goods or services to that customer, you can zero-rate the supply provided:
• you obtain and show on your VAT sales invoice your customer’s EC VAT registration number, including the 2-letter country prefix code
• the goods are only being delivered and not supplied to the third person in the UK
• no use is made of the goods other than for processing or incorporation into other goods for removal, and
• you obtain and keep valid commercial evidence that the goods have been removed from the UK within the time limits
and your records show:
• the name, address and VAT number of the customer in the EC
• the invoice number and date
• the description, quantity and value of the goods
• the name and address of the third person in the UK to whom the goods were delivered
• the date by which the goods must be removed
• proof of removal obtained from the person responsible for transporting the goods out of the UK, and
• the date the goods were actually removed from the UK
Your records must be able to show that the goods you supplied have been processed or incorporated into the goods removed from the UK.
In cases where the third person is not in the UK but in another EC Member State, the same conditions will generally apply to allow you to zero-rate your supply.
What should I do if I cannot meet all the conditions
If you cannot obtain and show a valid EC VAT registration number on your sales invoice you must charge and account for tax in the UK at the appropriate UK rate.
If the goods are not removed or you do not have the evidence of removal within the time limits you must account for. No VAT is due on goods which would normally be zero-rated when supplied in the UK. You may wish to consider taking a deposit for the VAT if you have reason to doubt that the goods will be removed. Extra caution may be advisable if your customer:
• is not previously known to you
• arranges to collect and transport the goods, or their transport arrives without advance correspondence or notice
• pays in cash, or
• purchases types or quantities of goods inconsistent with their normal commercial practice
What if my customer collects the goods or arranges for their collection and removal from the UK
* We need the following documentation for the zero-rated VAT/TAX to apply. Failing to do so we will have to add the standard VAT/TAX rate.
|1||Written order from your customer which shows their name, address and EC VAT number and the address where the goods are to be delivered.|
|2||Copy sales invoice showing customer’s name, EC VAT number, a description of the goods and an invoice number.|
|3||Date of departure of goods from your premises and from the UK.|
|4||Name and address of the haulier collecting the goods.|
|5||Registration number of the vehicle collecting the goods and the name and signature of the driver and, where the goods are to be taken out of the UK by a different haulier or vehicle, the name and address of that haulier, that vehicle registration number and a signature for the goods.|
|6||Route, for example, Channel Tunnel, port of exit.|
|7||Copy of travel tickets.|
|8||Name of ferry or shipping company and date of sailing or airway number and airport.|
|9||Trailer number (if applicable).|
|10||Full container number (if applicable).|
|11||Name and address for consolidation, groupage, or processing (if applicable).|
