Since the United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 December 2020, countries within the EU have begun to charge VAT on most goods supplied from the UK, including books. The charge is collected by the postal authority in each EU country and must usually be paid by the recipient before a parcel can be delivered. The postal authority may also charge a handling fee to cover their costs in collecting the VAT.
The book is available as hardback only.
There are FOUR different prices: –
UK postage inclusive £50
Europe postage inclusive £60
Rest of World (excluding Australia and New Zealand) postage inclusive £75
Australia and New Zealand postage inclusive £80
Click on the small black triangle in the drop down menu box to reveal the four pricing options and select the correct price for your country. Then click on the Buy Now button and follow the instructions.
The book is a large and heavy volume (2.5kg) and I have set the cover price deliberately low to help off-set the relatively high cost of shipping.
In case of any problems, or if you need more than one copy, please send me a message via the contact page. If you want to order multiple copies I will do my best to minimise shipping costs and invoice you directly.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLINE PARCEL COURIER SERVICES NOW REQUIRE A CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER FOR DELIVERY.
