Value Added Tax
Value Added Tax (VAT), known in some countries as Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an incremental state tax system applied in Europe, Australia, Japan, Canada as well as many other countries, but not in the USA.
VAT is invoiced (or not) depending on where the goods are being delivered. For example, if half of your records will be delivered to USA and the rest to your distributor in EU, sections "Delivery to USA" and "Delivery to EU" will apply for respective shipments.
Delivery to USA
No VAT applies, your goods are imported into USA through our US office, XVINYLX INC.
If you are a customer based in USA your delivery is sold to you as a domestic trade, with no fees or custom proceedings on your side.
If you are a customer outside USA, we will NOT charge you VAT, delivery to a recipient in USA is handled by us, with no fees or custom proceedings needed by the recipient.
Delivery to EU
A) Recipient is a company with a valid VAT number: delivery is invoiced without VAT. Recipient's VAT number must validate on VIES system: VAT number validation
B) Recipient is private person or a smaller business without valid VAT number: delivery is invoiced according to the VAT rate applicable in the country of delivery.
Deliveries to EU distributors (for clients in the USA, Australia or outside EU): bigger distributors in EU are always required by law to become VAT payers, so no VAT should be invoiced on dropshipments to your distributors.
Delivery to Australia
All deliveries to Australia are invoiced with 10% Australian GST.
If you are a customer based in Australia, you will be invoiced by our Australian office, XVINYLX Australia Ltd.
Delivery to Canada
Direct deliveries to Canada will require recipient to pay Canadian GST. Shipping will be compliant with CETA (Canadian European Trade Agreement) to minimize customs and importing fees.
Deliveries to Canada via USA are available on request.
Delivery to other countries outside USA, EU, Australia, Canada
Local VAT and state taxes might apply, recipient will be required to pay any import fees and/or customs and comply with customs proceedings during import.
