New EU VAT rules for E-commerce

As per July 1st 2021, Heusinkveld has to comply with new EU VAT (sales tax) rules for E-commerce.

Dear customers, dear simracing fans, 

As per July 1st 2021, Heusinkveld has to comply with new EU VAT (sales tax) rules for E-commerce. This change will impact the after-tax price paid in our webshop by consumers within the European Union. Non-EU customers and business customers are not affected.

All Heusinkveld webshop customers worldwide pay the same product price without VAT. For EU consumers, 21% VAT used to be added to the product price before checkout.

As per July 1st 2021, the EU country specific VAT rate (instead of the 21% rate) will be added to the price.
This means the following:

  • For countries with a VAT rate below 21% (for example Germany), the after-tax price in our webshop will be a bit lower than before.
  • For countries with a VAT rate above 21% (for example Portugal), the after-tax price in our webshop will be a bit higher than before.
  • For countries with a 21% VAT rate (for example Spain), the after-tax price in our webshop will remain the same.

So if you see small price changes and/or no longer see nicely rounded prices, this is the reason behind it.

In order to be as complete as possible, a kind reminder for our non-EU customers: Orders placed in our webshop may still be subject to fees at customs when our shipment enters your (non-EU) country. Nothing has changed here and regulations vary per country.

If you have any questions about this, you’re welcome to send us an email at info@heusinkveld.com
