Business to Business Sales

Due to the amount of work involved in reporting and accounting for sales to other VAT registered businesses in the EU, we regret that we are unable to accept business to business orders. The VAT charged on any goods bought from us and which are used for business purposes should be reclaimed from your home country's tax authority.

Our VAT Number is  GB 825 8600 22
