Pro Clima Tapes & Membranes

Recommended Posts

For future members who may be looking to purchase Intello Pro Clima membrane, Tescon Vana airtight tape etc, cheapest place I managed to find is a company in Germany. A search for Latzel Dammstoffe should find them. My order was with me within a couple of days, very keen pricing when compared to UK companies.

I am pretty sure that is the same people I bought a load from who also sell on ebay which I found a convenient way to buy it.

I took the view that even if I cant get the VAT back it still worked out cheaper than buying in the UK🤷‍♂️

What are you finding now, post Brexit is the cheapest place to buy Tesco Vana tape from? 
I have spoken to the company in Germany mentioned above and they now require an order value of over 200 euro. The tape is 16euro a roll through. 
anybody fancy splitting a batch if I order some? I don’t need that much. 
thanks

Just to let everybody know, I bought 13 rolls of Tescon Vana tape  from Latzel Dammstoffe for about 16 Euro each. 
 

A few points worth knowing:

 

- Post brexit your order value with them has to be over 200 Euro. (They are not registered in some way for the below £135 scheme where VAT isn’t refunded).

 

- They refund you the German VAT less a few fees (approx 25 euro in my case).

 

- You pay the UK VAT and UK Import Duty to the courier before the parcel is released for delivery.

 

Even with the additional charges, it’s considerably cheaper than buying the tape in the UK.

 

The above is probably obvious to most but it was the first time I’d bought anything of any value from the EU post Brexit so it might be useful to some.

Hi Thomas

 

Thanks for the information, I was just looking at these guys today and wondering how the VAT & Duty would work.

 

Could I ask a couple of questions?

  • How did you order with them? Was it through ebay de, their website or did you contact them direct?
  • Did you have to request the German VAT refund or did they automatically sort it?
  • What was the Duty rate you had to pay?

 

Thanks

I have corresponded with Thomas on this and he said the following:

  • He ordered through the DE site (the German version of the site as the English version did not work very well).
  • They automatically refunded the German VAT once the consignment shipped (less a small arrangement fee).
  • He then received a message from the courier to the UK VAT and duty.
  • He said the duty on 13 rolls of Vana was about £10.
  • He said it was still a lot cheaper than buying in UK.

Hope that's helpful. And thanks to Thomas for sharing his experiences.

I've recently placed an order for various breather membranes, Intello, tapes, gaskets etc. I estimated around £2.2-2.3k's worth if purchased over here. 

 

Once it's arrived and I've paid our VAT, duty etc I'll try and pull a breakdown together and see how it all compares. Delivery time etc.

Quick update:

 

All four parcels dispatched. I've paid two import duties so far and they attempted delivery yesterday but we were out. Ordered on Monday!

 

I've just had the other 2 import duty emails so should have delivery of everything mid next week. Really impressed so far. Latzel / Thomas has been incredibly quick with everything and DPD make it very easy to pay fees etc. 

 

Full breakdown of cost comparison to follow...
