At Toolsidee, you can purchase products VAT-free when you are a foreign VAT-liable customer and place an order with us for delivery outside of the country. Your order will be delivered with a 0% VAT rate. This is referred to as an intra-community delivery and is mandatory according to current laws and regulations. The reason for this is that we supply the products from the Netherlands.

Please note that this policy applies to orders placed on our European website. For orders placed on our English website,, the VAT is already excluded from the product prices due to the UK's status outside the European Union.

The transaction takes place between 2 VAT-liable businesses. This means that the order is registered in the name of a foreign VAT-liable registered company. Additionally, a valid VAT number is provided when placing the order. This VAT number belongs to a company registered with the European VIES. Finally, the invoice and delivery address of the initial order must match the address under which the company is registered with VIES. This means that you cannot have the order sent to a store or a post office.

If your VAT number is rejected?

If something is incorrect, make the necessary changes through the European VIES or simply place the order with VAT. If everything is correct, we recommend checking your details with the European VIES. We rely on this data for verification. Sometimes the data at the European VIES may not be up-to-date. In such a case, please contact these authorities and provide us with official proof of the address change.
