Eire, International & Northern Ireland Orders
As you can imagine, being an importer from mainland Europe, Brexit has hit us in numerous ways. Although a Free Trade Deal has been signed, this does not aliviate us from a vast amount of customs paperwork with all the associated additional costs. We are also seeing issues with exporting to EU countries including Eire.
We have now disabled all international orders again !. Confusion of the "Rules of Origin" conditions are prompting the possiblity of large customs tarrifs in addition to VAT and charges to be levied at the receiving country. In order that our customers do not receive a nasty surprise when they try and get their orders released from customs, we thought it better to suspend this option.
We are also continiung to suspend shipments to Northern Island until we better understand on how to implement the different rules for orders above £135 and also to companies based in the Provence.
We can't apologise enough for this crazy situation we now find ourselves in. So not only as importers we are hit hard, but also for exports !!
