EU VAT and Import Charges

Information For Our Valued European Union Customers

Butler Technik places great value on our European Union customers. To provide frictionless trade for all customers who order from European Union member countries we collect EU VAT on orders with a goods value of up to €150 (£135) at our checkout. This ensures our EU customers' orders get to them directly and are not delayed by customs processing, or subject to additional VAT and administration charges.

Orders with a goods value exceeding €150 (£135) may attract a VAT charge when they arrive your EU country. Orders will be sent via COURIER and customers will be contacted to inform of any VAT payments which may be due.

Splitting Orders

When our EU customers prefer all VAT to be paid at checkout it is possible for them to place multiple orders with values that do not exceed the €150 (£135) threshold. These orders will be processed and shipped individually and VAT will be collected prior to shipping.
