VAT-free delivery within the EU

Q: Do you sell to other EU countries?
A: Yes. Within the EU VAT-free delivery is possible provided that a valid VAT-ID is supplied. Please note the following important conditions:
• For commercial foreign EU customers their valid VAT-ID is definitely required!
• If the goods are shipped by a forwarder commissioned by TL Import-Export Handels-GmbH your valid VAT-ID will be sufficient.
• If the goods aren't shipped by TL Import-Export Handels-GmbH but picked up by a third-party forwarder we are obligated by the German fiscal authority to quote the VAT amount. We then need to verify that the goods were in fact exported abroad.This means we must check the forwarder for his particulars. For clearance a notification should be given by the ordering foreign company stating the forwarder's identity and the destination of the goods. We are sorry, but no VAT refund can be made unless this information is submitted.
