In connection with the corona crisis, VAT in Germany was reduced from 19% to 16% on July 1st, 2020. This economic measure is applicable until the end of 2020 and is voluntary for traders – this means that the VAT difference of 3% can be passed on to customers. In the following section you will find information on how we deal with the VAT reduction at HHV.
You decide what to do with the VAT cut
The prices at HHV are not reduced across the board, but we want you to make the decision while giving you the opportunity to do good with the money you save. So, you have the choice:
Option 1: With the code “KEEP3” we pass on the tax advantage directly to you and you save 3% VAT on your order.
Option 2: With the code “DONATE2” you can support the Berlin club culture – 2% of the money collected in this way will be donated directly to selected clubs, 1% will be deducted from your order value at checkout, so it stays with you.
Which clubs you can support
The amount you donated will benefit six Berlin clubs:
Additionally, we support some of these clubs with the sale of limited 7” bundles as part of our For the Culture-Campaign.
Current donation status
In the months of July-October 2020 we raised 8.532 EUR in donations, which we have already been able to pass on to the above-mentioned clubs. Many thanks to everyone who entered the code DONATE2 when completing the order and thus supported the clubs. Keep it up!
For updates on donations please also check the following HHV channels:
Next donation update: end of December 2020
Where can I redeem the coupon code?
You can find the two codes in your shopping cart and redeem them in the last order step.
What happens if I don’t enter any code?
If you do not enter KEEP3 or DONATE2 when completing the order, the money remains with HHV. If you want the money to stay with us, it also helps us to get through the current situation.
Can the two codes be combined with other discount codes and promotions?
Yes, you can combine KEEP3 and DONATE2 with all other HHV codes.
Can I get the discount afterwards or donate?
As soon as an order has been completed without KEEP3 or DONATE2, we unfortunately cannot consider any subsequent credit or donation request.
I live outside of Germany. Can I benefit from the VAT reduction?
No. The VAT reduction only affects customers with a delivery and invoice address in Germany.
Can I support other clubs?
We are aware that due to the ongoing closure, many clubs are in urgent need of a donation. Instead of helping many clubs with very small donations, we would like to contribute to the continued existence of a few clubs with a substantial amount of money.
