From Jan 1 2021, the UK Government have introduced a new model for the VAT treatment of goods arriving in Great Britain from outside of the UK, to ensure that goods from EU and non-EU countries are treated in the same way and that UK businesses are not disadvantaged by competition from VAT free imports.
For imports of goods from outside the UK, the UK Government has moved the point at which import/supply VAT is collected from the point of importation to the point of sale. This will mean that UK VAT must be collected at the point of sale.
Customers outside the European Union & UK:
For customers outside of the EU, the price of the item on the website will be the amount charged at the final checkout page and there will be no further charges or duties added to the item.
