Very Important for non-EU shipping

The UK (not including Northern Ireland for customs purposes ) is now a non- EU country. Check with suppliers for shipping and customs charges. Incoterms are important, DDP - delivery duty paid, means the seller covers customs tax, DAP- Delivery at place, means you the customer will have to pay any additional charges before you receive your package. Ask your supplier which incoterm they are using on their customs invoice and if the price advertised includes all costs you will be liable for to get the item shipped you you. GB Origin goods (made in GB) can have preferential treatment and not be subject to customs tax if accompanied by a relevant origin decleration form however products imported by GB shops (e.g brought in from china for resale outside of GB ) and then re-exported to the EU (Ireland) have a non-preferential status and are subject to customs tax.
