Exports and VAT

If you are intending purchasing items for export outside the United Kingdom YOU MUST satisfy
all of the following criteria in order for a VAT refund to be considered.
VAT DEPOSIT:
A deposit equal to the amount of VAT due will be taken & held by Husseys until satisfactory
proof of export is received (NO EXCEPTIONS):
TIME LIMIT:
GOODS MUST BE EXPORTED & DOCUMENTARY PROOF PROVIDED WITHIN THREE MONTHS
FROM THE TIME OF SUPPLY!! (Invoice/Sale Date) No refunds given after this period.
BUYER REGISTRATION FORMS:
VAT refunds will only be considered if the Purchaser declares their intention to export
goods and to request a VAT deposit refund at the time of registration and before bidding
on any items. Only VAT on Hammer Prices will be refunded. VAT on Buyers Premium or
other charges WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.
The registered purchaser must complete the appropriate form showing the export
destination & address. If a UK address is supplied this must be a correspondence address
only, and not a business address.

Shipping/customs paperwork may also be required. All VAT numbers checked/validated
