From 26th June 2021, we will be charging sales VAT on all orders made to be shipped to the EU (European Union). The rate of sales VAT paid by the customer depends upon which country the order is being delivered to, and what the order contains.

Orders of only books (either individually or in a set, with no items, including the Book Only subscription) will be charged at the reduced VAT rate if one exists in your country. Subscription boxes will be charged at a blended rate, detailed below. Special edition boxes and items on their own will be charged at the full VAT rate.
