VAT Free Explained:
For all VAT Free offers, prices have been reduced in the promotion with a discount which is equal to VAT Free (16.66%). Therefore it is equivalent to not having to pay the VAT. VAT is still applied to the order at the current rate of 20%. Standard mainland UK delivery is will be charged at £4.95 + VAT unless stated otherwise. Additional carriage charges may apply for large or heavy items, or items sent directly from our supplier. Offer can only be used on the website or through our call centre. It does not apply in the Salons Direct superstore. Offer validity and expiry is stated on all promotional activity and may be subject to change. VAT is not charged on educational books.*
For example, if you order an item costing £10 ex VAT. The total you would normally pay is £12 inc VAT. When we are running a VAT FREE promotion, we deduct the price of the item down by 16.66% to £8.33. Therefore when we add the VAT, the total you pay is £10 which would be the original price ex VAT.
VAT free can be used against permanent and semi-permanent colour but if ordering more than 10 tubes, you will get the Buy 11 for the Price of 10 Offer instead. VAT free can be used against any items included in the Mix and Match deals but if ordering more than 4 packs of lashes or 6 pots of wax, you will get the Mix & Match deal.
