Taxes, Payment & Shipping
EU & World Taxes
Due to recent tax laws update in the EU, from 1st Juy 2021 Bladepoint will apply your local VAT to the order instead of the Finnish one. Since Finland has a relatively high VAT of 24%, it means that most of the EU will get an automatic price decrease of a few percent.
The online prices are shown including Finnish VAT of 24%. When you log in or come to the checkout so the system knows your country, it will automatically apply your local tax rate to the order instead of the Finnish one. For instance, the price on a product may be 34€ with Finish tax, but only 33,18€ with Belgian tax or 32,62€ with German tax. If you live outside of the EU or have a valid EU VAT number, the tax will be removed and then the price will be 27,41€.
To make everything as smooth as possible, we encourage you to make a customer account so the system learns where you live, and thus can show the correct prices all the time. Below you will find the local rates for all EU countries
