Orion Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Ltd aims to reflect the most accurate information on its prices at all times. We supply items at the recommended price except where a specific discount is offered. We will make all reasonable efforts to present accurate information but we cannot guarantee the price or our ability to supply. All Prices listed are inclusive of VAT@20%.
Occasionally manufactures may increase their prices unexpectedly, and this is often something we become aware of only upon ordering stock from them. In the event that this occurs, or in the event of a pricing error however caused, we will, at our own discretion, either check with you before dispatch to see if you still wish to receive the item at the new price, or cancel your order and notify you of the cancellation.
All prices are displayed in pounds sterling (£) on our UK website, www.orionairsales.co.uk, and in US dollars ($) on our US websites. Other currencies can be selected by using our currency selector on our websites.
VAT Distance Selling Regulations
To comply with current VAT distance selling regulations, we now charge the applicable VAT rate for any country for which we exceed the distance selling threshold. This currently includes: Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Sweden.
Customers in VAT exempt territories within the EU
Unfortunately our system is not yet able to distinguish VAT exempt territories within the EU and therefore customers may be charged VAT when placing an order. This will be shown at the checkout phase of the order process.
We are happy to refund the VAT to you after your order has been dispatched. To request a VAT refund after dispatch, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember to include the order number with your request.
For further information on VAT distance selling regulations and selling thresholds please contact the relevant VAT authority for the country concerned.

Please note that our Standard Returns policy does not apply to B2B customers. B2B customers may return 20% from each individual order within 14 days, providing the items are in their original condition. Postage costs to send the items to our returns addresses will be the responsibility of the customer and the items must be sent back to their country of dispatch.

Returns are accepted at the discretion of www.orionairsales.co.uk. Refunds will be given in the same tender type as the original payment where possible.

Non compliance can result in courier costs and the like, any costs incurred by Orionairsales will result in charge to the customer. If a unit has arrived faulty a qualified engineer must write a report so this can be passed to the manufacture and a replacement part sort.
Please allow 14 days (in addition to the delivery time) for the return to be processed.
