*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. We are looking into ways of avoiding the inconvenience of this process for our customers but currently 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.
