Zero-rated VAT eligibility

As a division of Micron Europe Limited, Lexar Media is required to collect local VAT on all applicable orders placed on the Crucial.com website. The appropriate amount of VAT is included in the displayed price, and will also be added to the order total in the shopping basket. UK VAT (20% of the total order cost, including shipping charges) is applied by default to all applicable EU orders. Depending on where you are located within the EU, the local VAT amount in your ship-to country may be applied to your order. NOTE: As of 01 May 2004 Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, the Slovak Republic, and Slovenia are members of the enlarged EU. Normal EU VAT rules will apply to orders shipping to these countries.

You may be eligible for zero rated VAT orders if you meet the following criteria:

  1. Your order is being shipped to a country outside the EU.
    Orders shipped outside the EU are automatically eligible for zero-rated VAT. The VAT charge will automatically be deducted from the order total after the ship-to country has been entered.
  2. You are VAT registered.
    If you are situated within the EU (excluding the UK), and you are VAT registered in the country of goods receipt, you are eligible for zero-rated VAT. Please select the appropriate reason for zero-rated VAT eligibility when placing your order. In order to release your order we require a copy of your VAT registration certificate. Please fax your certificate to +44 (0)1355 586279 marked "Attn: Crucial finance" and include a copy of your Web order request number if available. Orders marked as eligible for zero-rated VAT that are not supported by the required documentation will experience processing delays. To expedite your order, please provide the exemption information as soon as possible. If you have previously faxed us your VAT registration certificate, you will not need to repeat this step.
  3. Your ship-to address is located in a VAT exempt region of the EU.

    The following EU regions are excluded for VAT purposes:

    Member state VAT-exempt regions
    Finland the Åland Islands
    France Martinique, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Reunion, St Pierre and Miquelon
    Greece Mount Athos (Agion Poros)
    Spain Canary Islands, Ceuta, Melilla
    United Kingdom Channel Islands, Gibraltar

    Please indicate the appropriate reason for zero-rated VAT eligibility when placing your order. Your order will be released with zero rated VAT subject to verification of your shipping address.

  4. You are ordering for a VAT exempt organisation.
    The following organisation types may be eligible for zero rated VAT:
    Organisation type Proof of eligibility
    Charities involved in medical or veterinary care or research. Appropriate certificate or letter from your local tax authority outlining your eligibility status or official declaration signed by an officer of the registered charity.

    Overseas bodies participating in defence projects involving international collaboration. Appropriate certificate or letter from your local tax authority outlining your eligibility status or official declaration signed by an officer of the organisation.

    Please check the appropriate reason for zero-rated VAT eligibility when placing your order. We require appropriate proof of your zero rated VAT eligibility status before we can release your order. Please fax the appropriate proof to +44 (0)1355 586279 marked "Attn: Crucial finance" and include a copy of your Web order request number if available.
