If you intend to export goods out of the UK, we ask you to satisfy yourself as to whether there is prohibition on exporting goods of that character e.g. if the goods contain prohibited materials such as ivory or they require an Export Licence on the grounds of exceeding a specific age and/or monetary value threshold as set by the Export Licensing Unit. We are happy to make the submission of necessary applications on behalf of our buyers, but we will charge for this service only to cover the costs of our time.

如果您打算將貨物出口到英國境外,您需要自行確認是否存在禁止出口該類貨物的規定,例如,貨物是否含有象牙等違禁材料,或貨物是否因超過出口許可證部門規定的特定年齡和/或 貨幣價值閾值而需要出口許可證。本公司很樂意代表買家提交必要的申請,但我們將收取時間成本費用。

Private overseas buyers can only receive goods free of VAT or have the VAT amount refunded if Dreweatts acts as exporter in relation to the sale, the goods are exported within 3 months of the sale and Dreweatts is in possession of adequate export documents. The VAT refunds are available for transactions exceeding £2,500. If you arrange for the goods to be picked up/delivered to you directly we will charge UK VAT at the appropriate rate and no refund will be available. Please note, buyers are responsible for completing the importation procedures as well as the payment of any relevant duty/VAT payable on importation into the destination country. 

Where the purchase has been made in the business or trading name, VAT refund will be available on proof of export provided within 3 months of the sale.

只有當您使用本公司作為出口商,並且貨物在拍賣後 3 個月內出口且有足夠的出口文件時,海外私人買家才能收到退還的增值稅金額。超過 2,500 英鎊的交易可享有增值稅退稅。如果您不通過我公司而安排直接取貨,我們將以適當的費率收取英國增值稅,並且不予退款。請注意,買家有責任完成進口程序以及支付進口到目的地國家時應付的任何相關關稅/增值稅。
