BREXIT and shipments from the UK to Europe and the EU
The UK left the EU on January 1st 2021 which means that if you are buying from outside the UK there are changes to the way VAT and import duty is charged. If you are a non-UK customer then you may be charged additional import duty on some products you buy from us. We will list the import duty rate and import commodity code in the product details so you can check if any duty will be charged. If you are unsure about import duty rates, please ask before making a purchase as you will be responsible for paying these charges when the goods reach your local customs. You will also have to pay (or defer) VAT at your country's normal rate when the order passes through customs.
We currently offer DHL Economy shipping services from UK in to Europe. The cost for DHL shipping service we list on our website will include DHL's processing fees for clearing the goods through customs. It will not include any duty payable on the products or VAT. Any duty and/or VAT due will need to be paid before the delivery can be completed.
