Adult Coloring Books UK and EU Restrictions

We have been advised that a recent review by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs in the United Kingdom has determined that UK sales tax (referred to as VAT) must now be charged on coloring books that are intended for adult use only. In the UK and Europe, Adult coloring books are considered stationary. We are not set up to collect VAT tax for stationary and have to remove their titles from those distribution channels. 

For this reason, we will be removing all qualifying titles from sale only in the UK and Europe.

Further information on the current HMRC VAT rules for printed books can be found at

These changes do not apply to sales tax rules in the US or those outside of the United Kingdom and European Union
