Will I need to pay VAT / TAX on purchases?
As outlined in HMRC VAT Notice 741 (sections 15, 17 and 18) Muhimbi is required by law to charge VAT to all UK customers as well as EU customers who have not specified a valid VAT / TAX number in their profile. EU Customers with a valid VAT number and customers outside the EU do not need to pay VAT.
Therefore, if you are located in the EU, please enter your VAT number on the My Account page. The system will determine automatically if the provided number is valid. You should be able to claim this back on your tax return.
When entering your VAT / TAX number, please do not specify the country specific prefix. However, do make sure the country field is filled out correctly before saving your details, otherwise the VAT / TAX field will not be saved.
What is Muhimbi's VAT number?
Our VAT number is GB940998478.
