Duties & Taxes (UK)

HMRC Vat and customs excise is normally not payable on Abler packages due to the labelled value of the goods. 

UPDATE: As at 20th July, packages are delivering to UK and EU without issue.

There will be significant changes to how the Value Added Tax (VAT) is applied to products purchased online and shipped into the EU and UK. These changes will take effect on1 July 2021.    

What do these changes mean to my Abler order?   

The VAT exemption on small parcels being imported into the EU and UK will no longer apply; the applicable VAT charge will be payable by the customer.  

Abler may not be VAT registered by 1 July 2021. This means that if your package is postmarked from 1 July 2021, local shipping carriers have the right to hold your package and request direct payment of the VAT and associated administration fees.
