What will change for parcel consignees in Germany who are expecting a shipment from the UK?

Even with the trade agreement, there will be some changes in parcel shipping to and from the UK, as the UK became a non-EU country on 1 January 2021. For goods with EU origin, there are basically zero customs duties and zero quotas. However, import VAT will still have to be paid. The same will apply to goods originating in the UK and imported into the EU. Please note that the exemption limit of 22 euros for goods from non-EU countries will cease to apply on 1 July 2021. This means that you will generally have to pay import duties on all goods you order from a third country such as the UK, in the country where the consumption takes place.

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The United Kingdom has left the European Union and the existing trade agreements are no longer valid.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 a service charge. 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.

How is the additional amount to be paid calculated?

The amount you have to pay as the consignee is made up of import duties, import VAT and a service charge. The exact amount depends on the value of the goods, the VAT rate and the rate of import duty.

What is the composition of the administrative costs?

The service fee includes the costs of customs processing and the documents required for this plus VAT.

How is the import VAT calculated?

Import VAT is charged on the value of the goods you import at a rate of 7 or 19 per cent. In other words, the price of the goods plus import duties, commissions and the cost of shipping (including the cost of insurance) to the destination.
