GENERAL INFORMATION ON BREXIT

From 01.01.2021, the UK is no longer be a member of the European Union. On 25 December 2020, the EU and the UK reached an agreement on a free trade basis.
As of 1 January, trade in goods between the UK and the EU will be subject to the new terms and rules set out in the agreement.

For our parcel industry, it means that between the UK and the EU:

  • Detailed data are required to export goods
  • Customs declarations are required for each parcel
  • The goods sent are subject to VAT (and duties when applicable)
  • Inspections may take place on some goods imported or exported
  • Rates change as a result of customs handling
  • Transit times may increase because of linehaul changes and potentially customs checks

INFORMATION ON DPD

  • If you are sending goods to an individual with a value of less than GBP 135, please register for an HMRC/UK VAT number as soon as possible. Please see the guide below for details.

  • Parcel arrival/transit time will increase from 3-5 working days to 5-7 working days due to customs clearance.

  • From 22 December 2020, we have suspended the parcel delivery service for individuals. We will not be able to ship parcels from individuals living in Hungary to individuals living in the UK, nor to companies with a permanent establishment in the UK.

  • As of 22 December 2020, we have suspended parcel point deliveries to the UK.

  • As of 22 December 2020, we have suspended DPD Collection Request for all parcels originating from the UK and also for any parcel collection request to any BU where the delivery destination is the UK.

     

Recipients will receive a link to an e-mail informing them of the payment of taxes and customs duties.


  • The link will be valid for seven days in all cases, but it is important to note that it will expire at the exact time of the hour at which the email notification was received (e.g. if the email notification is received at 14:25 on 04/05/2021, the link will expire at 14:25 on 11/05/2021)
  • As the system is automatic, payment is no longer possible after the link expires and it is not possible to stop the return of the goods to the sender
  • If you find that when you click on the link, the main Chronopost page appears or nothing happens, then unfortunately the link has expired.
  • Failure to pay VAT and customs duties (even if the link has expired) will in any case result in the goods being returned to the sender.

- For exports, when parcels are dispatched from Hungary to the UK, only DAP parity is possible, which means that the recipient has to pay customs duty and VAT in the UK.
- Temporary export (e.g. sending banners for an exhibition) or sending goods for repair to the UK is possible, but all costs are borne by the consignee when the goods are dispatched and by the sender when they are returned, i.e. in all cases the UK party.
- It is not possible for a private individual to send goods from Hungary to the UK.
- For any catalogue or product samples, the recipient is liable for customs duty and VAT. It is the consignor's responsibility to inform and advise the consignee of the rate of duty and VAT.
- Goods of EU or UK origin are duty free, duty exemption is subject to individual assessment.
- All goods are subject to duty regardless of the value threshold.

The change in legislation, which will enter into force on 1 July 2021, will mean that VAT exemption for consignments from third countries of less than €22 will be abolished.
From that date, VAT will be uniformly compulsory for imports of consignments of less than €150, but the exemption will remain (except for products containing alcohol, perfumes and colognes, and tobacco and tobacco products, which will still be exempt).
In all cases, import shipments arriving in Hungary via the DPD system will arrive already cleared through customs, with the import clearance procedure/release for free circulation being carried out at the point of entry into the EU in the first EU Member State. (usually France, Netherlands)

General clearance procedure:
- An email notification will be sent to the consignee in Hungary in English. This email will specify the VAT and/or VAT rate and the deadline to be paid.
- The email will contain a link to a quick and easy way to settle any VAT and VAT liability online.
- The mail will then be forwarded to the recipient.

DPD Hungary Kft. will not be charged any additional costs (customs and VAT) for incoming parcels.
According to the information available, several webshops outside the EU (Wish, Aliexpress, Joom, SHEIN , Saramart etc.) have the option to join the Import One Stop Shop (IOSS) system, which means that the customer will be charged VAT at the time of ordering, which is 27% for Hungarian customers, which is how much higher the prices will be.
For detailed information on customs and VAT payment rules and delivery information for non-EU webshops, please refer to the relevant webshop's website.

I am expecting a parcel from England

2021.01.01-től az Egyesült Királyság már nem tagja az Európai Uniónak, ezért amennyiben csomagot vár az Egyesült Királyságból, a küldemény vámfizetési kötelezettséget vonhat maga után. Amennyiben az áru eredete UK vagy EU, ez esetben nem lesz a vámtétel 0 %-os lesz. Amennyiben az áru eredete egy EU-n és UK-en kívüli 3 ország, az áru vámfizetési kötelezettséget von maga után.

A DPD Hungária Kft. vámkezelését a Chronopost nevű, francia cég végzi.

Az ügyintézés menete:

  • Email értesítést fog kapni a Magyarországi címzett a [email protected] email címről, angol és magyar nyelven. Ebben az emailben kerül meghatározásra a fizetendő ÁFA és /vagy VÁM mértéke és határideje.
  • SMS értesítést csak angolul kapnak címzettjeink
  • Az emailben lesz egy link, aminek a segítségével gyorsan és egyszerűen online rendezheti vám-és ÁFA-fizetési kötelezettségét.
  • Az online fizetési felületen meg lehet változtatni az oldal nyelv beállítását magyarra.
  • Az ÁFA és/vagy vám kifizetéséről az ügyfél egy visszaigazoló emailt és egy számlát fog kapni.
  • Ezután a küldeményt tovább indítják a címzett felé.
  • Az email értesítést 3 naponta fogja megkapni a címzett. Az SMS értesítést minden nap egyszer kapja meg a címzett.
  • Amennyiben a címzett nem vállalja vámfizetési kötelezettségeit az első kiértesítéstől a 10. napig sem, akkor a csomagot visszaküldik a feladónak az Egyesült Királyságba, mely további költségeket von maga után, melyek a feladót terhelik.

Lehetséges-e, hogy 1 számlával feladjunk kb.30-50 csomagot más-más szállítási címre?

Több csomag feladása lehetséges ugyanazon angliai címre, viszont egy feladó különböző címekre sajnos nem tud csomagot feladni.

Mikor és kinek kell vámot fizetnie, ha csomagot küldök Az Egyesült Királyságba?

Amennyiben az áru eredete az Európai Unió vagy UK, akkor vámfizetési kötelezettsége a címzettnek nincs, azonban, ha az áru eredete EU-n kívüli, pl. Kína, USA…ez esetben a címzettnek az áru értéke és típusa után vámot is kell fizetnie. A Címzettnek mindkét esetben meg kell fizetnie az angliai áfát.

Magánszemély már adhat fel velünk Angliába csomagot? Magyarországon vásárolt ajándékot pl.?

A változások miatt határozatlan időre a magánszemélyek csomagküldését felfüggesztettük. Más vámkezelés alá eső ország esetében sincs lehetőségünk magánszemélyek csomagjainak exportálására, így 2021-től Anglia, Wales és Skócia is ide tartozik.

Lehet-e Írországba vagy Észak-Írországba csomagot küldeni?

Igen! Az Ír Köztársaságba és Észak-Írországba is lehetséges minden további dokumentáció nélkül, vámmentesen csomagot feladni. Mindkét ország Európai Unión belülinek számít árukereskedelem szempontjából.
