VAT & Customs Duties on EU Sales

The UK left the EU on 1st January 2021 and as a result Import VAT and Customs Duties might be due for payment on sales of our merchandise to customers based in the EU.

Our sales to our EU customers are made with no VAT charged but the complicated nature of the new rules mean that EU customers may on occasions be required to pay the delivery company either Import VAT or Customs Duty or both for them to release the goods to you.

Where this is the case it is the customer who must pay the charges and we will not accept returns or cancellations as a result of these charges being made.

Our understanding of the rules is as follows:

1. Sales with a total value (including postage) under €22,00 - no VAT or Duty is payable by EU customers

2. Sales with a total value (including postage) over €22,00 but under €150,00 Import VAT may be payable by the customer upon request by the delivery company but no Customs Duties apply

3. Sales with a total value (including postage) over €150,00 Import VAT and Customs Duty will be payable by the customer to the delivery company in order for them to release the goods
