VAT will be charged at the prevailing rate. For UK customers, who are charities, VAT Zero rating might be applicable for specific supplies; this will be stated in your quotation. We would also like to remind you that VAT is always added for any purchases of live frogs.
Please note that our preferred method of payment is on the online store (links supplied upon purchase confirmation). If you cannot pay by credit card, we can issue an invoice.
For this method of payment, we require an official order from your organization that states your acceptance of our terms and conditions, and there will be an additional £20 surcharge to cover administration costs.
We can not raise invoices for less than £100; therefore any amount that falls under will be rounded up to £100, and the administrative fee of £20 will be added on top of that totaling £120 for the given invoice.
