Brexit & EU Exports

Monday, 4 January 2021  |  Tom



We have temporarily suspended deliveries to Europe due to unacceptable delays with the United Parcel Service system; we will regularly review this and restart deliveries to Europe as soon as the courier systems and customs clearances are running smoothly again.   

Britain officially left the European Union at the end of January 2020; the Brexit transition period has now ended with a trade deal finally concluded between Britain and the European Union

The deal means that trade can continue, as we have become accustomed, without any additional tariffs and duties - however there will be changes to the VAT situation.

All orders placed for shipping to the European Union will now be free of UK VAT (which is charged at 20%) - this will be applied automatically in the checkout process - you will then be liable for VAT in your country when you receive your order. 

We ship our orders via UPS and there will be additional freight/handling charges incurred to cover these changes; our standard rate for European shipping will increase to £25 (Ex VAT) with immediate effect.

There have been some well documented delays with courier deliveries to Europe post Brexit - we have been monitoring the situation and are now happy that deliveries should go smoothly albeit with slight delays.   

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
