Terms of Sale


The EU has recently introduced new import regulations that  requires us to register with the tax authorities in *every country in the EU* (or related countries) to whom we sell for tax purposes and to get a tax (EORI) number for those countries.  Further they are requiring that we collect their sales tax from you and send it to them with an accounting of the sales and taxes.  So sorry, but we are a small business and cannot afford the additional costs and burdens to our staff that this would impose so unfortunately we can no longer sell books to buyers in the EU.   If you do place an order with an EU recipient address, we will ask you to give an alternate Our apologies, but the EU has simply made shipping to EU  unworkable for us. Also note, many of our best EU customers have already located a UK or US friend or relative to accept packages on their behalf and there will then by no tax required because the book is coming from a private individual.
