International Orders

Ordering from outside the UK

If you are in Europe, Africa or the Middle East you can order direct from this website.

If you are outside this area you can order Sweet & Maxwell products from your nearest Thomson Reuters regional office or one of our recommended overseas agents.

VAT charges for customers outside the UK

Customers in the EU will be charged UK VAT at the prevailing rate on qualifying products (such as eBooks, online services and CDs) unless they provide a VAT number in which case VAT will not be charged.

Because we are registered for VAT in Ireland, Irish customers will be charged Irish VAT at the prevailing rate on qualifying products.

Customers outside the EU are not charged VAT.

For more information, view VAT in Billing & Accounts.

International delivery and costs

Charges for international delivery vary depending on the destination, product(s) ordered and their weight(s). Accurate delivery charges will be calculated and displayed at Step 4 Review Section of the checkout (before payment).

When your products are delivered, your local Customs may charge you a Customs Duty / import fees. Please contact your local Customs office for more information about their charges.

As we are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses, please ensure that you provide us with a full street address, contact name, e-mail address and telephone number when placing your order.
