What is VAT?

The Value Added Tax, or VAT, in the European Union is a general, broadly based consumption tax assessed on the value added to goods and services.

We will charge VAT only in some specific circumstances. When you put any product in the shopping cart our system automatically calculates italian VAT charge that, at the moment, is 22%. This doesn’t mean that your final order will be charged with VAT. As soon as you press checkout button and you login with your email address and password, the system will ask you to indicate shipping destination of the goods. At this point, when you will review your order (before final confirmation), the system will display if it will be charged with VAT or not.


Here is an overview of VAT application policy:

. If you are a trade company based in the EU and you provide a valid VAT number than VAT will NOT be calculated in the shopping cart. This is known as an "intra-Community supply”.

. if you are a private person and products will be shipped in a member state of the EU, than VAT will be calculated in the shopping cart.


. if you are a company or a private person and goods will be shipped outside the EU, VAT will NOT be calculated in the shopping cart.
