BFPO within the EU According to Notice 725 10.16 we may zero-rate the supply of goods or services to diplomatic missions, international organisations, visiting NATO forces and their personnel in other Member States provided all of the following four conditions are met:
1. The goods or services must be either for the personal use of entitled persons or the official use of entitled bodies.
2. You obtain documentation from the customer, as laid down by the host authority, for claiming exemption under Article 15 of Council Directive 77/388/EEC.
3. Any goods supplied must be removed from the UK.
4. We keep proof of the removal of the goods.
Therefore, if you believe that you are eligible then you should obtain a certificate complying with 77/388/EEC from your CO or pay office. We can then ship the goods by Special Delivery to the BFPO address.
BFPO outwith the EU For those serving outwith the EU we are able to export goods VAT free. If you are using a BFPO address we have to check with the VAT people that the BFPO address will qualify for relief.
