Channel Islands and VAT

VAT free purchases for Channel Islands

Customers in the Channel Islands do not pay VAT on purchases from Modern Lure Fishing as they are not part of the UK for VAT purposes.

All prices on Modern Lure Fishing website are shown with the current UK rate of VAT (20%) included. So please keep in mind a 20% VAT reduction will be applied to all valid Channel Island customers during the checkout process.

In order to qualify for VAT-Free purchases a valid Channel Island delivery address must be entered. We can only zero rate VAT for purchases shipped to the Channel Islands. All Channel Island residents shipping to mainland UK will be charged the standard UK VAT rate.

Shop as normal by adding products into your shopping basket (your shopping basket will show prices including VAT) Once a valid Channel Islands delivery address is entered during the checkout process your shopping basket will update automatically and apply zero rate VAT on your order.

You can either continue the checkout process and the cart will automatically remove VAT or if you wish to view your shopping basket showing final amount without VAT you can click on "Estimate Shipping and VAT" and then continue the checkout process. Below is a pictorial guide showing how to view your shopping basket without VAT by calculating "Shipping and VAT"
