Tax payable and delivery costs are displayed separately, according to the destination country.

 

Where we do not have stock of an item we will notify you promptly about it, when you add the item to the shopping cart. You will then have to decide whether you want to wait up to 15 days for delivery, or you prefer not to add the article to the shopping cart. In case you include the item into the shopping cart, Konomix will not prepare the entire order until this item becomes available, as we do not load partial orders.

 

The personal data in the form will be added to our database to allow KONOMIX to process your order and allow you to make further purchases at LEKUE. You will also be able to access your personal data and track all your orders. Remember that your personal details must be accurate to avoid misunderstandings and incidents when delivering the article(s) acquired.

5.2 Prices and Currency

 

All the prices published by KONOMIX in on-line shop include indirect taxes (Value Added Tax) when your initial settings state give a delivery address in the European Union. In other countries, prices are shown without tax.

 

With regard to Value Added Tax, as a general rule the current tax rate in Spain is applied for the European Union Territory, where this tax is applicable. Companies that are exempt from paying this tax in European Union countries are VAT exempt, with the exception of Spain.

 

VAT is not applied to sales in other countries in the world, however, the customs systems in each country will apply the corresponding taxes.

 

Purchases made by residents of countries outside the European Union are not subject to VAT (customs charges, import taxes and delivery charges are not included in the price of the article, and must be paid on delivery by the party receiving the goods). Because of their special tax status, the Canaries, Ceuta and Melilla are deemed territories outside the European Community.

 

KONOMIX, S.L. displays and sells the products in EUROS. However, USERS may view the approximate prices in their local currency, for information purposes only.
