Identity and security solutions for military bases

VAT-free ordering for military bases

The United States maintains a military presence all over the world. However, supplying these bases often requires navigating a complex web of taxes and tariffs. These additional costs can significantly increase the price of goods and services. 

Fortunately, ID Card Centre has extensive experience supplying US and other military bases and can offer a standard VAT exemption under HMRC rules for direct deliveries to the base.

As a matter of international law, host countries often grant VAT exemption to diplomatic and military personnel. This is typically established with a bilateral agreement between the United States and the host country, which is in place between the US and UK. These agreements outline the specific goods and services that qualify for VAT exemption and the procedures for obtaining such exemptions.

Drawing on our extensive experience, we have successfully supplied various US military bases both within the UK and internationally. Our expertise enables us to easily navigate VAT exemption regulations, ensuring our customers receive the benefits they are entitled to.

•    Proximity cards
•    Lanyards - available in plain, pre-printed, and personalised options
