BREXIT – terms of trade and VAT
With effect from 1st January 2021, the UK will no longer operate under EU rules. This means that all sales made outside of the United Kingdom will be an “export” of goods and will be zero rated for VAT purposes. VAT and import duties will become payable in the destination country. These charges will be raised by the delivery agent who will contact you for payment prior to delivery. Import Duties or Trade Tariffs are still under negotiation; it is anticipated the agreed rates will be in the region of 0-2.5%. We wait to hear the outcome of negotiations.
Our Terms of Trade are FCA meaning that we arrange collection of the goods by a nominated carrier from our workshop premises. It is at this point that the risk of ownership passes to the purchaser. Should you require any additional insurance for your purchase, please notify us and we will obtain a quote.
For those EU customers who are waiting for delivery of goods for an order placed via our on line shop before the 31st December 2020, please note we will refund the VAT raised on the order in early January 2021. the refund will be made to the credit card used for the original purchase.
Place your order through our secure online shop. Add whichever item(s) you wish to purchase to “basket” and proceed through to checkout. You will be given a shipping quote based on the delivery country and confirmation of VAT due.
If you have a specific deadline, please specify on the order so we are aware of the date.
On Line payment is required at this stage to confirm the order and schedule for production.
If you are ordering several pieces or certain of our very large items, the shop may not be able to provide a shipping quote. In such instances, the shop will state “OBTAIN QUOTE” and not charge for delivery at this stage. Please proceed with payment to confirm the order. In the meantime, we will look in to shipping options and reply with a quote.
