Only in rare cases, upon delivery, will sales tax or VAT be due.
For customers located in the U.S.: Products bought into and sold from storage are never subject to sales tax. However, if you choose to take delivery of your products, then we may need to collect sales tax.
- For orders delivered within the U.S., sales tax will be shown and collected at the time of checkout for your purchase or transfer order. For complete details on states and territories where U.S. sales tax might apply, please see the U.S. sales tax guide.
For customers located outside the US.
- We do not collect or remit VAT on any orders, and it is the responsibility of the purchaser to consult local tax professionals/rules to determine if any taxes are due.
- For deliveries outside the U.S., VAT, customs fees, and other duties or taxes may apply to your order. HAA does not collect or remit these fees or taxes, and you must arrange to pay them yourself. Typically the carrier will contact you at shipment time to arrange the appropriate documentation.
VAT may be due on some purchases of metals into storage. For example, if a UK resident was to purchase silver products for storage in a vault located within the EU (such as our London or Zurich vaults), then that silver may be subject to VAT as purchases of silver are subject to VAT in that region.
