The UK - EU trade deal means that tariffs will not be imposed on goods moving between the UK and Europe.
Some shipments into Europe may now be subject to import VAT. We are seeking clarity from the carriers (Royal Mail and DPD) with regards to when and how this will be charged.
Shipping services into Europe in 2021
We have been keeping in close contact with our shipping partners in the last few weeks, but they have been unable to provide any clarity on the services that they will be offering into Europe in 2021. They advised this week that they would be able to provide full information only once the trade deal has become UK law.
This has now happened and we expect an update on Monday.
Charging VAT on Ochre Stores.
Ochre stores have automatically adjusted to only charge VAT on applicable sales following the end of the transition period on 1st January 2021.
Pricing on stores
We have not adjusted any retail pricing on stores at this point and will not suggest doing this until the shipping options into Europe are shared with us and how import VAT will be handled is clear.
