Shipments to the European Union post Brexit
Tuesday, 25 January 2022 | Tom
With Britain having left the European Union, the trade deal means that there will be no additional tariffs or duties on exports from the UK to the EU - however there are changes to the VAT situation
The good news is that the trade deal means that trade can continue, as we have become accustomed, without any additional tariffs and charges.
The VAT situation will change - here's an explanation of what's changing and how it will impact on your orders.
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 along with any handling charges applied by the couriers.
We ship our orders via UPS - the standard rate for European shipping is £25 (Ex VAT). There may be additional charges for some remote areas and in this instance we will contact you to confirm any extra charges before your order is processed.
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 run smoothly.
Important - Please Note
- We will charge your order VAT free but you will be liable for charges when the goods are imported in to your country along with any handling fees from the couriers
- Your order will be shipped with a commercial invoice for customs purposes - please be aware of this if you are shipping to a third party as they will see both the origin and price of the goods
- If the goods undelivered and returned to ourselves - for example due to your failure to provide information required for import or non payment of charges, then you will still have to pay the carriage charges
