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.

Taxamo acts as our intermediary, providing the IOSS solution and collecting all the required VAT for each country of the European Union.
