If you are purchasing from one of the above countries you will be able to purchase in your own currency with UK VAT deducted.

Calculating European Delivery Charges & Fees

Deliveries to Europe that are not part of our Duties Paid Service are being shipped directly by us via FedEx on a duties unpaid service. Please read the following notes to understand if your order may be liable for local VAT and potential import duties. These are not controlled by us. Payment for said local VAT and import duties will be requested, if eligible, by the delivery agent on behalf of the local tax body and will require payment prior to the completion of the delivery.

Following Brexit, orders being purchased and shipped to European countries are now processed excluding the 20% UK VAT. However, dependent on purchase value, your order will subject to a tiered charging system for local VAT, import duties and delivery handling charges. 

 

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:

1. The cost of the items purchased.

2. The fee charged by the courier company (approximately £15), not the delivery charge you pay with your order.

3. 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

Orders will incur a local rate VAT charge (based on the location of the customs clearance house) and a delivery agent handling fee.

Please note we have no control over the processing of the import charges/duties paid and depending on the delivery country, the process does vary.
