Since January 1st 2021, post Brexit, all goods sold outside the UK will be sold excluding taxes but local duties and taxes may still apply for your country.
In most cases there are no duties on projectors and projector screens. However other sales taxes or VAT may apply outside the UK (except in the USA where its tax free under $800 total order value). We supply the goods to you without any tax and the courier will contact to pay the local VAT /Duties (where applicable).
See 2 examples below explaining how to calculate the taxes and duties eg for importing a Pico Genie Impact 2.0 to an EU country (Ireland) or the USA.
If you are located in the UK or Northern Ireland but shipping outside the UK
Prices will show both inclusive (inc) and exclusive (ex) vat for taxes.
When you enter your delivery address outside the UK then the 20% VAT sales tax is automatically removed.
If you are located outside the UK and shipping outside the UK
All pricing will show excluding any taxes.

Example shipping to USA
The example below is for a Pico Genie Impact 2.0 shipping to the USA and shows you how to use the IMPORT CACLULATOR if you want to check if any taxes or duties are due on import.
Its worth noting there are no duties to pay in the USA if the product is under $800.
On the IMPORT CACLULATOR, simply enter the info as below (or change the values based on your product) and click calculate.
In this example there are no duties or taxes payable so there is usually nothing to pay to the courier.
Example shipping to Ireland
If shipping to Ireland, local taxes such as VAT or customs duties maybe applicable on receipt of the goods.
If in Ireland, all prices will automatically show excluding taxes (no UK VAT applies).
When you go through the cart / checkout, the 20% UK taxes are auto removed based on your location so you can then purchase the goods excluding taxes. You would then pay the Irish VAT rate to the courier on import which is currently 23% (May 2023).
You can check on the IMPORT CACLULATOR if any import taxes and duties are due before placing your order.
The example below is based on a Pico Genie Impact 2.0 and normally you would not pay any duties and the VAT on £223.33 would be £58.61
How do you make the tax payment?
Tax charges will normally be levied by the courier used to deliver your goods and passed on to you at the point of delivery. It is your responsibility to pay import tax and duties charges when the courier contacts you (usually by phone).
This charge is levied by your government not by Personal Projector and we have no control over it. If you or someone acting on your behalf rejects the goods at the point of delivery then Personal Projector Limited may charge you for any associated delivery and administration charges.
Please note if you have a business account with the courier that is delivering (we use a multitude of couriers but mainly UPS and DHL) the courier may automatically clear goods for you via your account to speed up clearance.
