CUSTOMS & TAX

 

Sumo Rubber is now registered for UK VAT (GB 388458828). Our prices are displayed without tax, the tax will be calculated at checkout.


From 1st January 2021 as a result of Brexit, there will be a VAT payment and customs charge applied to all parcels received within EU. Order up to the value of £130 are subjected to EU VAT only and parcels over £130 are subjected to EU VAT, customs duty and handling fee. The amount of this additional payment will depend on the value of your order and regulation of each EU country. 


To comply with this new regulation, we have partnered up with company called Taxamo. Taxamo acts as our intermediary, providing the IOSS solution and collecting all the required VAT for each country of the European Union. This allows us to dispatch your order (if below the £130 threshold) without incurring any additional customs' charges and fees. An invoice provided by Taxamo will be attached to your parcel. Eventhough this invoice says that Taxamo is the seller, your Money-back guarantee or product warranty still lies with Sumo Rubber and all enquiries and issues should be addressed to us.

Orders over the £130 threshold will have to go through the usual custom's procedure and will be subjected to both the VAT payment, customs charges and potentially handling charges by the courier/delivery company. These additional fees will have  to be paid by the customer before receiving the order.


We will NOT under any circumstances falsify customs documents, and the total value of the goods will be stated on every parcel shipped.
