EU and European Countries

International One Stop Shop (IOSS)

We have introduced IOSS on all orders going to customers in the EU below the value of €150 (approx. £120). We will now charge VAT at the destination country's rate on these orders, but you will no longer be asked to pay the VAT and normally an additional handling charge, when the goods arrive. This means the price you are asked to pay at checkout is the total cost of the order. No unpleasant surprises later. Effectively this will return the situation to the one that existed before Brexit and will hopefully speed up the passage of goods through customs and on to our customers in the EU.

Orders with a total weight of less than 2kg will be sent by Royal Mails International Track & Signed or Tracked services, order over 2kg will be sent by DHL.

Orders over the value of €150 will not pay VAT but will be subject to Tax and a handling charge on arrival in the destination country, we suggest if you want to purchase goods above the value of €150 you split the order in two, as you will save money in the long run.
