EU CUSTOMERS VAT RULES FROM JULY 1st 2021
New legislation came into effect as from July 1st 2021 whereby any goods of £135 and less sent to EU member states from the UK will be subject to VAT import duty, due to the UK leaving the EU. Currently there are unfortunately no avenues for AFPD to register on the IOSS scheme (Import One Stop Shop) to enable this without huge costs involved to both AFPD and our customers. This leaves our customers having to pay the full VAT duty plus extra courier/postal handling charges at point of delivery. This means that for now, we are unable to ship goods to EU member states until we find a viable economic solution for both our customers and AFPD. We are hopeful that schemes to register for IOSS by HMRC and Royal Mail here in the UK will become available soon and will implement those as soon as they do. Until such time, we can only apologise to any EU customers for the inconvenience.
