7. Why do I have to provide a VAT number if I purchase on behalf of a company? 
Customers with a valid European VAT number will not be charged VAT. By entering your valid VAT number when you create an account, the correct VAT calculations can be made during order processing. This will be displayed in your order summary. If for any reason it is not displayed (eg. excess traffic at VIES VAT number validation), please fill out the contact form here. Our customer service team will then contact you.

If your VAT number is not given during the check out process or your VAT number is incorrect, French VAT at standard rate will have to be charged to you.

8. What if I do not have a European VAT number?
For deliveries within the European Union, VAT will normally apply at the current French rate. For deliveries outside the European Union (e.g. Switzerland), customers are responsible for reporting/paying the import VAT and other import duties/fees to the transport company which carries out the import on their behalf.


9. When will my order be shipped?
If you order before 12:00 noon on a working day, the available items will normally be dispatched the same day. Otherwise, the available items will be dispatched on the next working day.

Please ensure that your billing and shipping addresses are exactly correct, to avoid delays in order processing. Incorrect information may cause a delay in the processing of your order. Your order may also be delayed if additional verification of billing information is necessary.

Please note we only deliver within EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. If you wish to receive a product in another country, please send us an email to shop@contrinex.comor use the contact form.

11. Can I assign different ship-to and bill-to addresses?

12. What delivery service will be used for shipping the products?
We use UPS Standard for our deliveries in the available delivery areas. Based on our experience, UPS Standard fulfils most of our customers’ delivery requirements.
