10. Order Placement and Charges

Registering on labunlimited.co.uk is free to eligible subscribers. You may purchase any products provided on the website, at the prices designated on the website, by adding a product to a basket and choosing to proceed to payment.

On registering with labunlimited.co.uk, Carl Stuart Ltd requires a period of time to process customer accounts. This process involves, but is not limited to, collating the registration information and authorising the relevant customer-specific discounts and complimentary services. If you proceed to payment and complete an order prior to this integration, the order will be charged with all general duties applied and without any customer-specific discounts. If, subsequent to payment, an account with applied discounts and / or complimentary services is enabled, the balance amount on this initial transaction will be fully refunded either to the assigned credit account or to the credit card utilised.

All prices displayed on labunlimited.co.uk are exclusive of VAT. For all orders received from within the United Kingdom, VAT is added excluding instances where a VAT exemption has been received. Please note that if claiming VAT exemption, Carl Stuart Ltd require a copy of the Exemption Certificate from the Revenue Commissioners. For all customers outside the United Kingdom, within the EU, and registered for VAT, Carl Stuart Ltd requires a VAT registration number. Registration certificates can be faxed (08452 30 50 30) or emailed (onlinestore@labunlimited.co.uk) to Carl Stuart Ltd's customer service department.

The payment of import fees/charges is the responsibility of the importer. Such fees are levied based on the laws of the country into which the products are being shipped.

Products on labunlimited.co.uk are differentiated by geographical restrictions. Certain products will not be available for sale in designated countries. The country into which you are categorized is ascertained as of the address entered during the registration process.

If you are interested in a particular POA item, please use the "Request a Quotation" link next to that product. Upon furnishing us with contact information a Carl Stuart technical sales person will contact you directly.
