Do I need to pay tax on my order?

In the European Union (EU):
All charges payable to Focusrite are included in the final price of your order, however, we recommend contacting your local Customs office before placing an order with us in order to enquire about any potential import fees which may be payable once your order passes through Customs.

While we have not seen any major problems in this regard post-Brexit, in some instances you may need to pay import taxes for international imports from non-EU countries. In this situation the import duty is the responsibility of the importer to pay, and as such, we recommend checking the import processes locally before placing an order on our eStore in order to prevent any potential unexpected additional Customs fees charged on delivery.

In the US:
Prices are displayed excluding sales tax, sales tax will be added at the point of checkout based on your billing address. Sales tax is chargeable for addresses in the following states:

    • California
    • Florida
    • New Jersey
    • New York
    • Tennessee
    • Illinois
    • Washington
    • Mississippi
Outside of the EU and US:
Prices are displayed including sales tax and import carrier charges.*

Additionally, please note that when ordering from Focusrite.com, you are considered to be the 'Importer of Record' and as a result you must comply with all laws and regulations of the country into which you are receiving the goods.

This may include the requirement of paying standard import duties in order to clear your shipment through Customs; Clearance charges on international imports change from country to country, and are not charges we have any involvement with as the charge is to you as the importer, and as a result, we advise that you contact your local Customs Office in order to find out more information about the Customs processes in your locality, before making a purchase.

It is a legal requirement that we declare the full value of the goods (not including shipping charges) on all packages destined outside the European Union or the United States. It is a criminal offence to falsify the details on this form. We cannot inaccurately describe the contents of the shipment, claim a lower value or mark it as a gift. Please do not ask, or expect us to do any of the above.

* For all Canadian orders a delivery charge will be applied. These are shown at the checkout.
Up until the point of processing your order and taking funds, we may be able to cancel your pre-order. Please get in touch with our Customer Service team for assistance.
