VAT (Value added Tax):

VAT of 20% is included on all UK orders. All of our prices are shown on the website inclusive of VAT.

Customers from outside of the UK can select their country from a drop down menu in the shopping cart, if the county is exempt from VAT then the charge will be removed.

New EU VAT changes: With effect from the 1st July 2021, the exemption on VAT and duties on orders below €22 will end for goods being sent to EU destinations. All orders of any value will now be subject to import VAT and duties. So, although we will not charge VAT on your order at point of sale, you may be charged import fees in your own country.

Delayed/lost deliveries:

Royal Mail aim to deliver Recorded Delivery and Tracked 24 items within 1-2 working days. However, this is not a guaranteed service and can take longer. Royal Mail do not class an item as lost until 15 working days from posting have passed. Once the 15 days have passed we can resend or refund the order and submit a claim for loss to Royal Mail.

If your order is urgent we recommend that you use the next day delivery service which is guaranteed for orders placed before 2pm.

For orders outside of the UK Royal Mail do not class an item as lost until 25 working days from posting have passed. therefore we cannot refund or replace packages until such date.

If you are in the USA, USPS is responsible for the delivery of your package. If the tracking status says 'delivered' but you dispute this, you must contact USPS as we have no control of the US postal service.

Returns:

The Swarovski factory packs cannot be returned once opened. This is because once the tear off seal on the back of the packs has been removed the packs cannot be resealed and therefore cannot be resold to another customer. We offer a 7 day cooling off period on all other products and unopened factory packs on the condition that: The goods have not been used, purposely damaged or tampered with in any way.
You must contact us within 7 days to advise us of the return and the item must be returned with 14 days.
The safe return of the item is your responsibility.
Once the item has been received we will issue a refund. Please note: The refund is for the cost of the goods only, not the delivery charges.
Any goods found to be faulty/damaged can be returned for a full refund or a replacement at no extra cost. You must contact us within 7 days to advise us of the fault/damage. The faulty/damaged item must be returned to Scatter Crystals Ltd before we can issue a refund.
