New EU VAT regulations

From the 1st of July 2021 the EU brought in new legislation to charge VAT on ALL purchases coming into EU countries from outside the EU regardless of value; your items will be delivered by Delivery Duties Unpaid (DDU) meaning you may have to pay import VAT and a handling fee before you can receive your items. If you have any questions about this please email us here.

Services worldwide are improving rapidly and in many places are nearly back to normal, hurrah! We are now offering Standard services to the US once again but we suggest for large orders you still use the tracked and signed option. We will continue to send Europe and Rest of the World international orders on a 'Tracked' or 'Tracked & Signed' service only until air transport is back up to capacity and we are confident items are arriving in good time.
