A small (but valued) part of my sales are to countries outside the UK, mainly North America and mainland Europe. Brexit appears to have significantly complicated the sale of goods from the UK to the EU and there is the likelihood of additional charges as outlined below.
Import Tax and Customs Duty
As far as I understand, Import Tax (VAT) may be added to sales up to £135 and Customs Duty may also apply if the value of the goods is greater than £135. Most of my orders are less than £135 so it is likely that only VAT will apply.
PLEASE NOTE that the prices on this website are for the goods only as sold in the UK and do not include any taxes or duties that may apply due to the cross border trade. The customer is liable for any such additional charges that may apply.
I am aware that couriers may be applying increased charges for cross channel shipping due to increased administration costs. This has not affected any of my sales as yet but I will need to review the shipping charges for each order and may need to pass on any additional charges.
If you have placed an order from an EU country I will confirm the additional costs (as far as possible) by email and I will give you the opportunity to cancel the order with a full refund before processing the order if that is your preference.
Thanks for reading this information and for your support.
