Sales tax (VAT)

For a Canford customer being invoiced to the following countries:

  • UK

    Standard VAT rate, typically 20% will be applied to the order. No VAT registration number is required to place an order.

  • EU

    VAT will not be charged if a valid tax registration number is provided during the ordering process. In this case, the buyer will then become liable for VAT on receipt of the goods.
    If no VAT number is provided, standard UK VAT will be applied to the order.

  • Rest of the world

    VAT will not be charged. Import duties and fees may be payable by the importer of the goods.
