VAT Info


Driftworks are based in the UK, but we ship orders all over the world to all types of people and businesses.

Who needs to pay VAT?
All customers and businesses in the UK

Who will not get charged VAT?
All regular customers inside the EU tax zone*

Who pays the Tax and Import duties for shipments outside of the UK?
We do not charge TAX on orders delivered outside the UK. If you are having goods delivered to any country outside of the EU it is the recipients responsibility to pay any tax and import duties relevant to their country.
This is usually collected by the courier service (such as FedEx/DPD) and goods may not be released until the TAX and duties are paid.


Our website will show TAX correctly, but it needs to know who you are first.
You can do this by quickly Registering your details or Signing In if you have an existing account.

We are currently working to reinstate EU tax and duty within the shop, but current Brexit limitations prevent us from doing this. As soon as the new EU tax systems are online we will look at integrating our web store into them. Until then, we can only apologise for the disruption this has caused.
