UK Delivery Information
UNITED KINGDOM (Mainland) Excluding Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands & Isle of Man
All our United Kingdom orders are shipped from our warehouse in Ireland via GLS couriers and forwarded to Parcelforce UK for delivery.
Due to UK leaving the EU on the 1st January 2021 and becoming a third country for customs purposes
Shipping a parcel to the UK from our warehouse in Ireland is no longer a simple matter .
We have no choice but to pass on charges that are now in effect, to be able to continue to process parcels for delivery to the UK
As of 1st January 2021 the following changes have come into effect
Added to the standard delivery charge , there will be an additional courier handling fee and Export and Import customs administration fees of £20.00 per order
This fee includes
Additional courier handling surcharge
Irish Export customs declaration fee
UK Customs Import declaration fee
All orders up to a basket value of £135.00 STG will be charged at the UK Vat rate of 20% but are not subject to import duty
This along with the delivery charge will mean orders up to a value of £135.00 reaching the UK will be Vat Duty and Customs cleared with no additional charge for you to pay when the parcel is delivered .
For orders with a basket value over £135.00 ,
The delivery charges and customs administration fees stay the same , but once the basket value exceeds £135.00 the 20% UK VAT is automatically removed from the invoice .
When your parcel arrives in the UK it will be subject to inspection by HMRC Customs , they will place a valuation on the parcel to determine the amount of UK Vat and any necessary import duty which could be as much as 8% (estimated) which you will have to pay to them before the courier will be allowed to deliver the parcel .
