New European sales tax legislation
On 1 July last, the sales tax legislation was changed. The most important change is that we now have to charge sales tax based on the customer's country. We used to be able to calculate Dutch sales tax for everyone. From now on we have to charge different prices to customers from different countries. The software is now set up for this.
From Saturday 26 June, the Corona restrictions in the Netherlands will be lifted, we hope that from that moment the normal delivery times for mail will apply again.
Because of King's Day we're not able to ship orders on April 27th. We will dispatch these orders on April 28th..
Rare B&W parts found in South Korea
An investigation showed that B&W in South Korea had a number of B&W parts in stock which apparently were difficult to sell, we bought these parts from them. All parts are original new B&W parts and all parts have been checked by B&W in the UK before being delivered to us. This includes the following components:
ZZ10111 (DM601/2/3/4 tweeter)
ZC10111 (DM601-604 diaphragm)
ZC10383 (SS30 diaphragm)
ZZ05460 (DM610/620/630/640 tweeter)
The stock of these parts is limited, once we have sold these parts it will be even more difficult than before to obtain these parts. As soon as we have photographed the parts, we will place them in our shop. If you are desperate for one of these parts, you can reserve a part, while stocks last.
Deliveries to the UK since Brexit
Ever since Brexit deliveries to the UK are a hit or miss. A delivery either takes a few working days, or a few weeks. Why? We've got no clue. All we can say is it seems traced shipments pass faster than regular mail. Please choose a traced shipping service if you need your parts urgently. If you choose regular mail count on delays.
Lockdown and delayed delivery
of five weeks until at least the 3rd 20th of April starts today in the Netherlands. This lockdown (together with the amount of Christmas mail) will cause delayed deliveries. Do you take this into account?
Shipping to the United States only with track and trace
Due to the Corona crisis, shipments to the United States take so long (six to eight weeks) that we have spoken to many customers in recent weeks who doubt whether their order (sent as regular mail) has actually been shipped. As of today, to provide assurance to our customers, we ship all shipments to the United States with a tracking number only. Unfortunately, this means that the shipping costs can be relatively high with an order.
Delivery still delayed
The delivery times have not been shortened over the last weeks...
Within the Netherlands: 2-3 working days
United Kingdom: 20-25 business days
United States and Canada: 30-50 business days
Western Europe: 5-10 working days
Rest of Europe: 8-12 working days
This is based on the information we collected up to June 19th.
