Following the UK’s departure from the EU, purchases made on our website out with the UK are now processed excluding a 20% UK VAT charge. Your order will however be subject to a tiered charging system for local VAT, import duties and delivery handling charge.
The total of you order will be updated at checkout once the shipping and billing address has been applied.
Calculating your order value
For the purposes of the local VAT and import duties calculation, the EU define the total order value as the sum of:
The cost of the items purchased.
The fee charged by the courier company (approximately £15), not the delivery charge you pay with your order.
The sum 1 + 2 will then be converted from GBP to Euro. The currency conversion rate is defined by the EU customs clearance house.
Calculating your import VAT + duties based on order value
€0 - €22 orders are VAT free and import duty free. Your order may still be subject to a delivery agent handling fee.
€23 - €150 orders will incur a local rate VAT charge (based on the location of the customs clearance house) and a delivery agent handling fee.
€151+ orders will incur a import duty charge (normally 10% of the order value), a local VAT charge (applied to the combined cost of your order value + import duty charge) and a delivery agent handling fee.
