The UK - EU Trade agreement impact on shipments


The recent EU - UK trade agreement introduced a new model for the VAT treatment of goods arriving into the United Kingdom from outside countries. 

This model introduces an order threshold below which, online marketplaces will have to collect the UK VAT at the point of sale. 

As we are in the process of registering to the UK VAT office and in order to comply with the law, a minimum order amount of 155 EUR (135 GBP) is put in place for shipments with a destination country of UK. This will allow for UK VAT not to be charged at the point of sale. However, VAT may be charged at the point of importation and the customer is responsible to ensure that is aware of these extra charges and taxes prior placing an order at the48ers.com.

We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding.
