What is Value Added Tax (VAT)?

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a sales tax that is required to be paid by customers that live within the European Union(EU/EEC.)

DCC Supplies Ltd is based in the United Kingdom, the rate of VAT applied to our goods is 20.0%. If you DO NOT live in an EEC member country you DO NOT have to pay VAT.

Additionally, products shipped to the Bailiwick of Guernsey and States of Jersey are not charged VAT. This is because the Channel Islands aren't part of the European Union with respect to VAT.

To qualify for Channel Islands VAT-free shipping, the delivery address,must be a JE or GY postcode. Channel Island residents shipping products to mainland addresses will be charged VAT. When entering an order, if you're not logged in, or you haven't yet created a delivery address in the Channel Islands , your shopping basket will show VAT. This will be removed at the shopping basket checkout/when you do log in and your order is processed, as the Channel Island delivery address postcode will be recognised.
