Sales Tax - VAT and GST

All prices on our site exclude sales tax, unless otherwise indicated.

Any applicable New Zealand GST charges for customers in New Zealand or VAT for customers in Europe will be shown on the order confirmation page.

Sales tax is NOT applied by Weta Workshop to orders originating outside your customs area, but these charges are instead levied by the customs in your country along with any further taxes and import duties.

VAT (Value Added Tax) is payable on all items shipped within the European Union. As our warehouse is situated in the Netherlands, we charge Netherlands VAT (currently 21%).


Since 2010, Weta Workshop has covered the 21% VAT for items from our EU warehouse that were dispatched to EU customers. We have done this manually, behind-the-scenes. Now our new website does it automatically and transparently. It’s all there at checkout, which is great. But it doesn’t take into account the resulting price increase. We are working on the issue and expect to identify a positive course of action ASAP.

GST (Goods and Services Tax - currently 15%) is the sales tax applied to orders originating in New Zealand shipping to New Zealand addresses.
