Brexit and EU shipments - our guarantee if you order before the UK leaves the EU.

Posted by David Shand on 15th Oct 2019

The UK is scheduled to leave the EU soon.

We don't know when and how - but neither do our politicians!

If you are ordering from the EU you may be concerned about VAT and future tariffs between the UK and EU, especially if you order now and delivery is after the UK leaves the EU.

At the moment we charge UK VAT of 20% on all orders to the EU automatically when you place an order. It may be that there is no agreement between the UK and EU where UK VAT will be recovered in the EU.

We understand your concerns therefore if you place an order online before the UK leaves the EU and if the delivery is after the UK leaves the EU, we will guarantee to refund the UK VAT element prior to shipment.

Furthermore we will also refund the tariff, if any, that is applied in the EU to outdoor clothing imported from the UK.
