VAT free delivery for EU customers
Our commercial customers from European countries outside Germany have the option of placing orders without VAT. (For deliveries within the EEC per §6a of the German Value-Added Tax Act (UStG))
To do so, make sure to provide a valid VAT number in the corresponding field when you set up your account.
It will be checked automatically in real time without waiting!
The VAT number entered will be checked against tax office databases. Once the check is complete, you will be automatically assigned to a different customer group and the prices displayed in the shop will exclude VAT.
Normally, orders will then be processed and invoices issued without VAT.
In rare cases, the automated VAT number check may temporarily be unavailable. In this case, please try again at a later time or get in contact with us.
Deliveries outside the EU, such as to Switzerland, are generally exempt from VAT.
Once you login with an account indicating a delivery address outside the EU, the prices displayed will automatically be shown without the 16% German VAT.
