upon the return shipment if you have not taken the proper steps to pre-register your shipment with your customs office prior
to original US export, or obtaining VAT relief using your assigned VAT registration number.

CHOICE, YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE THE PROPER STEPS TO REGISTER YOUR SHIPMENT WITH YOUR LOCAL CUSTOMS OFFICE PRIOR TO THE ORIGINAL
U.S. EXPORTATION IN ORDER TO AVOID VAT OR DUTY IF THE ITEMS ARE TO BE RETURNED TO YOU. THIS CANNOT BE DONE AFTER THE
