Is price on IWM shop with VAT or not?
« on: 18 December 2017, 13:11:18 »
Hi,
question is asked in Subject and feel I need to add some info behind my question. As I am from (Central) Europe I would like to know this to do more precise calculation for possible future order of minis (mechs/armored vehicles/vtol/infantry). I expect to pay VAT at my country (with other local taxes :().

I don't work for IWM, but I'm fairly certain that the prices published on their website do NOT include VAT. While they do ship outside the US, to my knowledge they don't collect taxes for any entities outside the United States. Heck, even here in the US they aren't obligated to collect state or local sales taxes unless the purchaser is in the state of Ohio.

Geont,

With no disrespect to the fine folks at IWM, have a look at the Ral Partha Europe BT line in their shop. They don't have the more modern sculpts, but they do have a lot of the basics, and their overseas shipping is much better than US postal.

The prices do include VAT, but if you're outside the UK, you get a refund of the VAT shortly thereafter.

Well, I am asking because there are minis that are not in RPE catalog that I would want. For these in their catalog I plan to purchase some (theirs MW/MC lance packs picked my interest) from them.

As an American store they almost certainly do not include VAT

Check out fantasywelt.de, they have IWM selection but ships in Europe. Site's German only but fortunately Google Translate exists.

Yay, I completely forgot about this shop. It would solve some of my issue and I could save on postage (I live near German border). Thank you for bringing it up

If they don't have something you want, you can always shoot them an e-mail. Fantasywelt usually then includes it in their next IWM order and then ship it to you (which will make your overall delivery later, but that way you can get absolutely everything IWM has).
