Information about VAT

Urban Cottage Industries Ltd is registered for value added tax (VAT) and is legally required to add VAT at 20% to most sales. The VAT number is GB 988655736.

When VAT is added to the sale price:
  • You are an individual or a business ordering goods for delivery to a UK address.
  • You are an individual or a business not registered for VAT ordering goods for delivery to an EU address.

When VAT is not added to the sales price:
  • You are an individual or a business ordering goods for delivery to an address outside the UK or EU.
  • You are a VAT registered business and ordering goods for delivery to an EU address and provide a valid VAT number before completing the sale. We are unable refund VAT after a sale has completed.
  • You are receiving delivery to the Channel Islands. The Channel Islands are not part of the UK for  VAT purposes, so orders going to the Channel Islands are treated as zero-rated exports. However, the total amount you pay for your order will not change.

When we are able to refund VAT after a sale has been completed:
  • You are a VAT registered business which ordered goods for delivery to an EU address, paid VAT on the original purchase, and return the entire order at your expense.
  • You are welcome to place a new order with a valid VAT number.
