    VAT eligibility

    Most charges are VAT applicable, some are VAT exempt and others have VAT applied at 0%.  

    As a general rule, the prevailing VAT rate is charged for Transportation Charges (TPN) and at 0% for Energy Charges (ENG). 

    While the charges are VAT applicable, some Shippers are not registered in the UK and therefore will pay the relevant taxes in their country of registration.
