From 1st January 2021, All goods imported to the United Kingdom, regardless of value, will be subjected to VAT. The VAT rate ranges from 0% to 20%, depending on the contents of your item.
Customs officers will mark specific parcels as “suspicious” and ask for supporting documents for further inspection. For first-time customers, please note that customs clearance will take longer in the beginning and that supporting documents are more likely to be needed. Hence, failure to provide the EORI registration number (on the commercial invoice), items will be returned, and additional charges will be incurred by courier/customs.
