VAT payments in the EU

VAT* in the EU member states from 1st July 2021.

In order to benefit our customers financially we are not registered for VAT (local purchase tax) in the UK (therefore we do not add VAT to our products) In the UK companies have a choice not to charge VAT where their annual turnover is £85,000 or less unfortunately within the EU this is reduced to €10,000.

We currently are running a Delivery Duty unpaid (DDU) on items Shipped via Royal Mail where the EU customer is obliged to pay local VAT before Customs release the goods for delivery. The local fee that you could be charged on your delivery will be equivalent to purchasing within your own country where local VAT* or tax is applied.

We do apologies for any inconvenience this may cause to our EU customers.

We are hoping to integrate a Delivery Duty paid (DDP) into our website shorty. DDP is where we as a business charge all customs duties, and fees before shipping goods into the EU destination country. This would mean our European customers are not charged a handling fee by their own countries delivery partner.

We hope to introduce a new module into our website via our checkout which will collect VAT on behalf of EU member states using the IOSS portal and therefore will negate any handling fees paid by customers.

*VAT is a tax added to most products and services sold by VAT registered businesses.

We can now offer DUTY PAID (DDP) shipments with UPS, please contact us for details.
