Purchasing laptops via a BFPO address.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Two questions, firstly does buying items in the UK and havng them sent to a BFPO address excuse you from paying VAT, and secondly does anyone know of an online supplier of laptops that recognises BFPO and would excuse VAT on items sent there?
    I am on a ship, so it is not like being at a BFPO address that is permanently located in another country, so I am a bit dubious but it seems worth asking.
  2. Dell have a BFPO sales department within their Staff sales department as their staff get Tax free anyway so they have just tagged BFPO onto it
  3. DONT DO IT! I had a camera stolen by those thieving NO LONGER RE THANK GOD! posties in the Precission Factory, Gornji Vakuf, Bosnia several years ago... 300GBP worth!

  4. Go online to DELL UK they do VAT for squaddies plus you can customise your choice of laptop before buying too - I have a DELL and its sweet.
