Brexit - important information when ordering from UK




Ordering from - Shipping to UK. *

Update 11-01-2021 

We are investigating the option for you to select "landed costs", so all in one time payment at check out, expect to launch this around sept 20th 

follow the updates here.

 Due to recent changes in the UK & EU’s trade agreements, customers living within the UK will no longer be charged VAT on their purchases in the Netherlands  from based in the Netherlands (EU)

BUT- You will be charged  clearance costs and VAT at arrival in the UK. This will be collected by UPS.

So, your order will be shipped on a DAP (Delivered at Place) service and you will be required to pay duties and taxes on your purchase when it arrives in the UK . UPS, will contact you in advance of delivering the goods.

The shipping cost you pay on our site is transport cost like usual, so the clearance costs and VAT are not includsed in our shipping cost.

 Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and we cant tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from product to product. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting. To check online, you could have a look here

The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.
