We are often asked if we can still send orders to the EU due to brexit
The answer is - Yes you can order, please do! There are some changes to be aware of though so please read on:
Overall - Orders to the EU are now treated the same way when we (or anyone in the EU) sends to a non EU destination like Norway, Switzerland, Canada, New Zealand, USA, Australia, Russia, Chile, India, Thailand etc (we do that all the time with no problems)
No VAT/Sales tax on sales to EU countries
Before brexit - we charged VAT at 20% on orders and shipping to the EU.
After brexit - Now "zero rated" - we do not charge any VAT on orders or shipping.
However nothing is truly tax free of course! EU buyers will be charged the VAT at their local country rate based on the value we declare on the custom's label.
Depending on import regulations in each country there may be some additional flat rate import fee.
Many destinations have a limit in value under which they pay nothing, USA very generous at around $800, others not so much, Norway around £30 for example (amazing how many orders to Norway are under £30 😉
So basically things should work out equal or very close too.
As there is a customs process required now there will be some extra time taken. In most cases this will add 1-3 days.
For best speed contact us to ask for a courier quote option as they expedite the process. Costs vary by country but are mostly in the £25-35 area.
Brexit is a disaster in many ways for the UK but the impact on private customer sales is minor and may even result in cheaper prices.
Please just buy as usual as it is business as usual
