This trial is thoughtfully designed to seamlessly convert into a more comprehensive quarterly subscription. The quarterly subscription is economically advantageous, priced at £30 per month.
  2. Value Added Tax (VAT). All prices listed on our platform are exclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT) unless explicitly stated otherwise.

    VAT is applicable to customers based on the regulations and requirements of their respective countries. Customers may be required to pay VAT in accordance with the prevailing tax laws of their country of residence or operation. As a non-EU supplier of electronically supplied services, we are required to account for VAT on these services provided to EU non-business customers as a result of the VAT place of supply rules contained in Council Directive 2006/112/EC on the common system of value-added tax.

    In order to fulfill our VAT obligations, we have opted to register for VAT under the special scheme for non-EU suppliers of electronic services, also known as the one-stop scheme, in accordance with Article 357 to 369 of the above EC Directive rather than register for VAT in each member state individually.

    As we are registered for VAT under this one-stop scheme, we are required to charge VAT to non-business customers at the rate that applies to the customer`s member state.

    123Rental.uk – Easysearch International Limited,  incorporated in Hong Kong, registered under VAT-number EU372067698 charges VAT for transactions with B2C (Business-to-Consumer) customers. For B2B (Business-to-Business) customers, please contact us directly to arrange for VAT to be reverse charged. It is the responsibility of B2B customers to inform us of their status and provide necessary documentation for VAT reverse charging. We are a non-EU supplier of electronically supplied services. As such, our VAT registration number is prefixed by “EU”

    3. The initial price displayed on our platform is exclusive of VAT. When required by the customer’s country, the applicable VAT will be added to the initial price.

    4. All prices and VAT amounts are specified in GBP (British Pounds) unless otherwise stated.

    5. Customers are responsible for any additional VAT charges imposed by their local tax authorities. VAT will be clearly indicated on the invoice, separate from the initial price.

  3. 123rental.uk gives the User the opportunity to use the trail period once for 14 days. Each User can take advantage of this offer once a year. After this free period, the membership automatically transfers to a paid membership and a payment obligation applies if no cancellation is made within the given time frame of 14 days within the free trial, under the My Account section Subscriptions or by email to info@123rental.uk
  4. If the User abuses the free period several times in a year, the account will immediately be converted to a paid membership and invoiced to the user.
  5. If the User does not unsubscribe within the free period, the subscription and therefore the payment obligation for the User will automatically commence immediately after this period. The subscription has a fixed period of at least 3 months. After 3 months (90 days) the subscription can be canceled monthly. If the agreement is not cancelled before the end of the term, the subscription will be extended by 90 days each time.
  6. Payment for a Membership must be made to one of the payment methods designated by 123rental.uk. In the event of payment with IDEAL, Credit Card, Bancontact, Giropay or Sofort, the User provides an authorization when entering into the Subscription to have any subsequent instalments collected automatically.
  7. In case the payment fails, payment must still be made by bank transfer, within the term stated by 123rental.uk on the invoice.
