How is purchase tax / VAT handled ?

Softshop 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.

DP Software is in the UK which is part of the European Union. Our online shop therefore has to charge tax at the UK rate of 20% when shipping to any EU country. There is no tax for countries outside the EU although you may get charged any local sales taxes when the package is delivered to you. For this reason we show VAT inclusive and exclusive prices in the online shop. Your shopping basket will show the appropriate total when you enter your delivery address and before you commit to purchase.

EU companies that are not in the UK but are registered for VAT in their own country should enter their VAT number when purchasing from DP Software. This enables us to zero rate your VAT.
