COVID-19 | EU Shipping Import Duty
EU Import Duty & Tax
As a result of the Uk leaving the EU all orders going to an EU country will now be ex VAT this means you do not pay UK VAT on your order. At this moment in time we will not be collecting any tax or import duty at the checkout. This may change in the future however.
We will be using a postal or courier service that will collect the tax and if over 150 Euro (£135) the import duty too. There will also be a small handling charge that may be charged by these services.
This will be the normal procedure from now on, please see further advice from your local authorities regarding this issue.
