VAT REFUNDS: -

VAT after all order expenses has been deducted! All order expenses can be covered by your VAT refund and its remaining amount can be transferred back to your bank account!

The maximum cost of a single order cannot exceed £1,500.

Many online abroad-shopping fans often ask themselves of why stores such as ASOS, Next, Tesco, etc. do not make VAT refunds to their customers from outside the UK! Well, there are many reasons for that but they all are easily narrowed down to the impracticality of such a strategy. The good news now is that all Alfa.uk customers have an opportunity to get VAT they paid on their UK online orders back to them.


It's now cheaper to place large orders through the intermediary than purchase with online stores directly. The larger VAT is included in the order price, the bigger sum will then be refunded to you!


The VAT refund is a fee-based service. However, you still have the opportunity to benefit from shopping with us and getting a share of an order price back, regardless the fees!

WHAT ARE HAPPY VAT COMMISSION FEES?

1 item £15
2 to 5 items £20
6 to 10 items £25
11 to 15 items £30
16 to 20 items £35
For every 5 items thereafter £5

Important

Products prices do not affect the cost of the VAT refund service. The fees for the service depend only on the amount of items in the order.

For example, your order consists of 5 items and their total cost is £450 (including £75 of VAT). Then the VAT refund service fee is £20 and you will receive £55 back. But in case you ordered 5 items with the total cost of £60 (including £10 of VAT) the fee for VAT refund service will still amount to £20. For such an order the small VAT refund amount doesn't cover the costs of our services.

Therefore the larger VAT amount is in your order, the more beneficial the VAT refund service is. If, for example, you order contains only 1 item amounting to £750 (including £125 of VAT) our service for you is only £15 and you will be refunded with £110 (£125-£15=£110).

Alongside the VAT refund service fees there are also costs of the delivery from the UK to you to be covered.

Example 4 £696 20 items £116 £35 around £50 £31
Example 5 £864 2 items £144 £20 around £25 £99
Example 6 £1 080 50 items £180 £60 around £60 £60

That way if VAT amount on your order is small you will not benefit from the VAT refund service. However, if your order contains a large amount of VAT it can completely cover both the service fees and the delivery costs.

Moreover if your order has a large VAT, you may be able to receive a portion of the payment refunded back to you after these deductions have been made.

The remainder of VAT is refunded to your original payment method.
