VAT Free Sale Explained

Our VAT Free equivalent sale means the total payable is the pre-VAT total of the merchandise. You will still be charged VAT (that's the law!) but the total amount you pay is as if we have not charged it. For example, if a product costs €100.00 +VAT the total you will pay is €123.00. When we have a VAT Free Sale, we discount the price down to €81.30 +VAT so the total you pay is €100.00, which is the same as the original price, but without the VAT.

VAT FREE discount does not apply to Shellac, Gelish, GHD, Harmony, TIGI, American Crew, delivery charges, products already reduced/discounted,Training Courses, College Kits and various items at the Shops discretion.
