EU Customs & Import – Post Brexit
The prices shown on our website exclude any Import VAT, Import Duty, or Customs Administrative charges. Our delivery charges only cover the cost of shipping the order to you and do not include any other charges that may be incurred.
Depending on where your order is being sent to within the EU, Import taxes and duty charged will vary.
Children’s clothing is VAT exempt in the UK, and so previous shipments to countries to EU countries, when the UK was in the European Union, did not incur a charge to the customer.
As a consequence of the UK’s departure from the EU, this VAT is now required, with the amount determined by each individual country within the EU. If you live in a country that charges VAT on children’s clothing, then you will be expected to pay this.
HappySkin will continue to trade as normal in processing your orders from our UK warehouse for UK, USA, Rest of the World (ROW) (non-EU) customers. There will be no change to how you receive your HappySkin Order.
All orders to the European Union will be shipped (DDU) Delivery Duty Unpaid, so any order(s) shipped outside of the UK will be subject to local custom taxes and/or duties.
