During their lifetime, people make money. Smart folks save a good percentage of this amount. The amounts may vary but almost everybody agrees that it is really important to have a solid rainy day fund. Not only that but a lot of successful and prosperous families made their fortunes through a couple of generations, so it is more like a compounding thing.

Anyone who is developing their own business, climbing the corporate ladder or works as a freelancer know how hard is to stack this hard-earned cash. Not only that but to preserve it and eventually make it work for you. There are different asset classes - national or foreign currencies, stocks, government bonds, real estate, precious metals, cryptocurrencies, you name it. We are always long/short in various positions, even if we don’t see it this way most of the time. So, it is really important where to invest in this hard-earned wealth.

The markets go in cycles. Some of the time they go up and some of the time they back down causing a lot of pain and inconvenience to a lot of people. Plenty of PhDs, economists, and media folks have theories about why this happens but it seems that this is just the very nature of things – times of prosperity are followed by times of turmoil and vice versa.

Last 10 years we saw an unprecedented Bull Market, the biggest one in the history of mankind. There is a whole new generation already actively trading on the market which barely remembers the last economic crisis from 2008-2009. And who studies history knows that there are plenty of them back in the day, probably a lot more to come.

It is no joke – this type of thing wipes out companies, people lose their jobs, savings diminish and wealth is destroyed. That’s why it is very important to be prepared. In the ARTICLES section on our website, we cover these topics and the reasons why we think it is crucially important to be with guard raised high. The precious metals are the bullet-proofed hedge against the crisis. Not only that but we strive to provide our clients with the best possible options to invest in precious metals.

Gold is perceived as the money of the kings and it is the first choice for a lot of folks. But the statistical data shows that most of the time on dubious days silver outperforms gold. However, there are some specifics about investing in silver that should be mentioned.

*

Unlike gold, silver is viewed as more of a commodity by the European legislator because of its huge industrial usage and is traded with VAT within the territory of the European states. With the added premium of the product itself, the buy and the sell prices differ substantially, sometimes exceeding the 50% mark, which is discouraging to many investors who, rightly so, favor physical possession of their bullion. 

*

That’s why while searching for affordable and reasonable options for our clients we came up with The VAT Free Silver Solution, which we believe suits the best the needs of our customers.

*

Estonia levies 0% VAT on certain silver legal tender coins and coin bars with face value on them, as opposed to the majority of the European countries which charge 19-25% VAT for this.

*

Delivering goods from a retailer in one European country to another sees VAT levied at the receiving country rate, but when the goods are both bought and delivered in a single country, i.e. Estonia, then VAT is charged at the local rate – in this specific case zero-rated.

*

The delivery doesn’t need to be in person for the ownership to change hands and that is why we are delivering the silver to a third party in Estonia on behalf of the purchaser. The purchaser is then considered by the law to have taken delivery and the silver is now in the ownership of the purchaser. As a personal possession, it can now move across EU borders free of any additional taxation.

The new owner instructs a courier to then collect what is now their own property and deliver it to their home in the higher tax jurisdiction, where it is delivered free of additional VAT.

*

Combine that with the lowest spreads in Europe and we believe we come up with a vital solution and the most affordable way to invest in the Highest Quality Silver Bullion out there. 

*

All our prices are final and already include all taxes when applicable. If your delivery location is within the European Union, you will not pay any extra VAT or Import taxes.

*

For all customers inside the European Union, all our products are delivered in Estonia. This means that you have to book shipping separately. Mail-order businesses are subject to Article 34 of the EC-guideline 2006/112/EC and therein established quotas that limit the international sales of VAT-liable goods. This guideline is, however, only applicable when we ship the goods to our clients. The quotas do therefore not apply when the goods are being collected personally or when the buyer instructs a courier service to collect and ship the products on the customer's behalf.

*

Products ordered from the Europa Bullion website can be delivered Tax-Free to your address when you book shipping directly with our partners PM DELIVERY LTD. We have simplified the shipping process so that it is easy and straightforward, directly on our website.

*

IMPORTANT: All of the above rules are applicable for PLATINUM and PALLADIUM as well.
