Brexit Schmexit - it is business as usual for our EU customers

by Costumechest Admin

At last a deal is reached - thank goodness for all that !

So, what does it all mean for you, our friends in the EU ? ...Actually not much has changed in practise with regards to ordering from us here in the UK. Instead of paying UK VAT ( the name for the UK version of sales tax or TVA ) we will now ship to you with VAT removed and you will be asked to pay your local rate of VAT by whatever delivery service you chose and the amount will go directly to your own government. That is in fact exactly what used to happen behind the scenes while the UK was a EU member but now you have more visibility where the tax portion of your purchase goes.

  • Our prices will remain the same for all our customers regardless of what country you are in.
  • If you are a UK or non EU customer then absolutely nothing changes whatsoever.
  • If you are an EU customer, thanks to the Free Trade Agreement, there are no new tariffs to be added and in fact we will now discount any applicable VAT from your shopping basket just before you pay so in many cases you will pay us the same or slightly less than shown on our website. If there is any local VAT due on your purchase it will be the same as making a purchase in your own country but will be charged by the carrier prior to or shortly after delivery to you. We do all the hard work by making sure the correct prices, commodity code and country of origin is on the paperwork sent with your order to make the process and any customs delays as painless as possible.

I am sure it is a great relief for everyone that cares about children in the UK and EU alike to know that Costumechest can continue supplying fabulous quality childrens costumes, dress up and party wear into 2021 and beyond.

Wishing all our customers a very happy, prosperous and safe New Year. A really big thank you for your support, it means the world to us
