This service is replacing our previous main UK delivery company APC and this is a 24 hour service so will be a quicker service for our UK customers. Customers from the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man’s orders are also sent Royal Mail 24 but may take slightly longer because of their geographic nature.

From the 1st January 2021 we have new rules regarding international orders. All international orders placed on our website will be ZERO RATED for VAT so you will no longer pay any UK VAT on your order but will be liable for VAT in your own country. As the UK’s VAT rate is 20% you should find you will pay a similar rate in your country but probably not more than 20%, but this does vary.

You also need to be mindful of possible import duty if your order is of a certain value (again this varies by country) but it would be a wise move to see what that threshold is and keep your orders below that amount. That way you shouldn’t be paying any more for your orders than you were doing before 1st January 2021 and you may actually find you end up paying a little bit less because our VAT rate of 20% is quite high.

Please be aware that as per our terms and conditions all international orders are sent at the customers own risk.
