Shipping Delays During the Coronavirus Period
We are continuing to process and dispatch orders as normal during the Coronavirus period. However, the local UK postal system operated by Royal Mail and most international postal services are suffering from staff shortages resulting in a backlog of mail which is causing delays. In addition, you will potentially see further delays at your local Customs inspections.
Therefore we are suggesting all customers an additional 7 days to the estimates below to give you an expected delivery time. Canadian customers please allow up to 2 weeks extra due to the extreme backlog there.
Orders sent to UK customers will normally take 2-5 working days depending on whether you choose 1st or 2nd class postage. The latest daily Royal Mail service updates are here under the section titled ‘Royal Mail Logistics Network and Processing Report’.
International orders are sent by Airmail and will normally take 5-21 days to arrive depending on local customs clearance. The latest Royal Mail International service updates are here.
Under the Distance Selling Regulations unused items can be returned within 14 days for a refund. Please contact us for a returns authorisation number and the correct returns address.
VAT for EU Customers
All orders are sent by Airmail from the UK. Due to the UK leaving the EU on 1 January 2021 some orders sent to EU customers will become liable for VAT when they arrive in your EU country. Many EU countries have an exemption from VAT for goods below a certain value. Orders that are valued below this exemption level will not be liable for VAT collection. Below is a table with the VAT exemption thesholds for each EU country. If your total order value is below the amount shown then in theory you should not have to pay any VAT when your order arrives in your country.
|Country||VAT Exemption Threshold|
30 Leva (approximately €15)
160 Kuna (approximately €21)
80 kr. (€10.70)
€0 (no exemption)
€0 (no exemption)
€22 (VAT amounts of under €10 are not collected)
0 kr (no exemption)
Information in the table above is for your convenience only. Checked on 22/12/2020. Errors and omissions excepted. See official EU information for details.
If you live in an EU country with a low VAT exemption threshold you could have your order delivered to someone you know in another EU country with a higher threshold. For example, if you live in Sweden (€0 threshold) but have a friend, relative or colleague who lives in Finland (€22 threshold) you could have your order delivered to them to avoid paying VAT and any VAT collection charge. If you are ordering several items and the total is over the threshold you could also split your order into two or more separate orders, each below the threshold. Remember that postage cost is also included in the total by some countries.
