Value added tax (VAT) is a sales tax levied on the sale of goods and services. In some countries, including Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, this tax is known as "goods and services tax" or GST. 
A common VAT system is compulsory for member states of the European Union. The EU VAT system is imposed by a series of European Union directives, the most important of which is the Sixth VAT Directive (Directive 77/388/EC). Nevertheless, some member states have negotiated VAT exemption or variable rates for regions or territories.
When you browse the Carbon Filters Direct website the VAT we have to levy will be shown. However when you log in you are provided the opportunity to enter your country:

If you are outside the EU we will not have to charge you VAT.

If you are from within the EU we offer you the opportunity to exempt yourself from VAT for your purchase, by providing us with your VAT number.

If you are unable to provide us with a valid VAT number or you are within the UK we will have to collect Value Added Tax (VAT) with your payment.
Your final invoice amount is shown in your basket and will reflect your logged in status, it will show inclusive VAT when appropriate.
