How is purchase tax / VAT handled ?

MyCommerce handle all our download sales. They are based in the USA and laws force them to add any local sales tax for your state. They also have to add VAT to orders from countries in the European union and sales tax to some other countries which have international agreements. Tax will be at the rate set by your own country so the amount is not known until you go to checkout and state your address. At this point you will see the final price and can decide if you want to proceed.

For Canadian states that add a separate download tax to overseas companies, this will not be added to the price and will be paid by MyCommerce and subsequently billed to DP Software. Only the regular download purchase tax will be added in the shopping cart.

DP Software is in the UK but due its small size no longer needs to charge VAT. Due to the complex rules of the EU and the need to handle tax for them, we no longer ship overseas except to our tax registered distributors. Please check for a local stockist or ask your local store if they can obtain it from us.

To puchase our products for resale in the EU, you must be registered for VAT in an EU country and provide us with an EORI number which is normally issued for free by your countries tax authorities. You will be charged VAT by the delivery company at your normal country rate which you can then offset against your VAT payments on your next VAT return. We provide statement of origin and tariff codes on the documents which should avoid all other duties. The only other small fee will be from the delivery company for collecting the VAT.
