From 01/01/2021 the UK are no longer a part of the European Union (EU), and this changes how mainland UK (England, Scotland & Wales) based consumers buy product from EU based stores like ours.
Our website now displays all prices excluding VAT and no longer charges you VAT on orders shipping to mainland UK.
Customers will however be liable for 20% UK VAT which will be charged to you by HMRC (customs) and collected by our shipping agents (DHL) when the shipment enters the UK. You will be contacted by them to complete the payment, usually by text message. DHL also charge a small handling fee which is 2.5% of the VAT and a minimum of £11.00.
This will be the case when you order from any company based in the EU. If you order from a UK based company they will display vat on their website and charge you the 20% VAT directly on the order. So whether you buy from an EU based store or a UK based store you will be paying more or less the same total price on the product.
If you are a VAT registered business in the UK there is no need to enter your VAT number.
