Why do I have to pay more for the goods I order?

The United Kingdom has left the European Union and the existing trade agreements are no longer valid. Parcels from the United Kingdom can therefore be subject to import VAT, import duties and an administration fee. From 1 July 2021, the exemption limit of 22 euros will no longer apply to goods imported from non-EU countries. Consignees will then have to pay duties on these goods if they exceed a value of 1 euro, unless the consignor has already paid the duties.

This is the case, for example, if you buy goods worth less than 150 euros outside the EU, the seller is IOSS-registered and the procedure applies. If the sender is not IOSS-registered, you as the consignee have to pay the import VAT and possible customs duties, which we have to charge you.
