All prices on this website include VAT at 20% unless they strictly say otherwise (excluding Used goods). In line with most dealers we buy and sell used equipment on the Government's 'margin' accounting scheme. All of our Used equipment is sold at zero VAT, and therefore VAT cannot be reclaimed when purchasing Used equipment from Park Cameras.
We process many orders to the Channel Islands and are experienced in the deduction of VAT for these orders. We can not deduct the VAT from the delivery cost as we have to pay this cost to our delivery company.
In most cases, to mitigate the risk of credit card fraud, we are only able to deliver orders to the registered cardholder address. In certain cases, it may be possible to arrange for delivery to a place of work, but we will require additional security checks to be completed (including obtaining a copy of your card statement) and this may cause a delay to your order being despatched.
We are unable to send orders to any residential address other than the registered cardholder address. If arranging an alternative delivery address is important for you, please discuss this with an advisor on 01444 23 70 70.
