Thank you to all my lovely EU customers who have waited so patiently for information regarding the new rules for shipping to the EU post-Brexit. Since the UK/EU trade deal was signed on 24 December, I’ve been working hard to make sure everything is in place to meet the new rules. The main points, as I understand them, are:
- goods under the value of €150 are not subject to customs duties within the EU.
- goods may be subject to VAT depending on the specific VAT rules for each country. Please do check what the import value limits are, and whether you are likely to be charged VAT on your order when it goes through customs in your country. A list of some EU countries’ VAT rules can be found here: https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/sites/taxation/files/vat_buying_online.pdf
