TAX FREE PURCHASES
You wish a taxfree delivery to a foreign destination? the following things are to consider:
As a private customer with a delivery address within the European Union you order as normal in our online shop and pay the German VAT. A tax-free sale is not possible.
If your delivery address is outside the European Union, you order tax-free automatically. In this case, however, your delivery address is important. For a customer with billing address in Switzerland, thus there are the following options:
Shipping to Switzerland. This is tax-free, but you have to expect a higher postage.
Shipping to a border near town in Germany. You must first pay the German VAT to us and then see if you can get a VAT refund from customs in Switzerland.
If you order on behalf of a company that has its headquarters abroad, you can order tax-free.
This is either the case if the delivery address is outside the European Union or if it is within the EU but outside Germany AND you have a valid VAT identification number (UID, VAT number, ATU, ...).
The VAT registration number will be checked on our website at registration. Please note that this is a qualified test procedure. It is necessary that your entered address incl. country and your company name correspond exactly with the registration at the tax office, otherwise there will be a rejection in the examination procedure. It is also necessary that billing and delivery addresses match.
