International Parcel Delivery
with Delivery Duties Paid
International Parcel Deliveries with Duty Paid
Following Brexit, the UK is no longer part of a single market. This means that e-commerce goods being sold across the UK and EU borders will be subject to customs duties and taxes. These taxes and duties will depend on the value of the shipment being sent, the current thresholds for goods entering the EU until 30th June 2021 will be:
- €0 - €22 no Duty or VAT due on B2C shipments
- €22 - €150 VAT due on B2C shipments
- €150+ duties and VAT (duties dependent on WTO categories) due on B2C shipments
- B2C goods manufactured outside of the UK and EU, Duty is then applied if the value of the goods exceeds £135 in value
In response to the change and to ensure that your goods continue to be shipped to your customers, Whistl has provided a solution for shippers sending items into the EU who require a tracked parcel delivery service, with International Parcels with Delivery Duty Paid.
