Brexit Impact Statement
The UK’s exit from the EU in January 2021 has had a significant and detrimental effect on our business. In particular with goods imported from the EU. Costs for importing some goods have significantly increased and additionally duties have been imposed depending on where the goods originated. As well as increased costs, delivery times have been extended from a few days to an undetermined period, primarily caused by goods being held in customs for weeks or months.
With effect from 1st July 2021 the following additional terms will apply to all orders.
The deposit charged will be equal to the full value of the goods. Orders can no longer be placed with the supplier until full payment has been received.
The price quoted will exclude VAT, duties, & import charges.
The import charges will be invoiced separately and will be charged at the same rate as the couriers charge us. Duties will be charged at the rate applied by the UK customs. Unfortunately, these cannot be determined before the goods are imported.
No delivery times can be guaranteed, delivery will be advised once the goods have arrived at our premises.
Delays vary from a few days to several weeks.
