VAT refund

The listed prices contain 16% German VAT (value added tax). These prices are effective for customers within the EU. We offer full VAT refund to Non-EU customers. This means that these customers enjoy refund of the 19% VAT. Thus, an eurologo 1.000 instrument costs you only eurologo 1.000 / 1.19 = 840! Registered businesses can buy VAT free from us within the EU upon providing their VAT number.

We are not responsible for any import fees or taxes which may apply upon import into your country (outside the EU). We may be able to give you estimates of import fees and tax (if any) from our experience upon request.

Holding and trail of instruments

Holding an instrument in stock requires full payment. Upon receipt of a definitive purchase decision instruments are held for up to two weeks to wait for the payment to become effective. We do not offer a general trail period. However, you can buy an instrument and are free to return it in unchanged condition and get refund minus shipping and money transfer costs. You MUST inform us before you do so. Because of customs return may be difficult whenever possible and costly upon shipment outside the EU. We can not refund such costs.

Special orders

Special orders are possible for handmade instruments upon request. Depending on the degree of "specialty" a non-refundable prepayment is required from 30 - 100%.

Within Germany the first order requires prepayment; subsequent orders can be billed.
Outside Germany all orders need prepayment.
Acceptable methods of payment include:

- electronic money transfer
- certified bank cheque in eurologo (EURO)

Costs for money transfer with either of these methods must be covered by the customer. Within the EU the use of international bank account numbers (IBAN) is most effective and often for free. (We can assist you in finding the cheapest and fastest way, for your merchandise and country).

Within Germany, all merchandise sold upon sole use of telecommunication can be returned within a limited time according to 13 BGB. Principles are translated here - any details are given in the German page and can be found and are valid as described there. Ask us upon conditions we can offer for your country.
