So, what does Brexit mean for us?
- anything we sell to the EU has to be sold without VAT, then held up in the customer's country at customs until VAT and import charges are paid by the customer.
- we can't buy from some of our smaller suppliers unless they decide to get registered for UK VAT - a process that's backed up right now.
- rather than dealing with EU rules as a single entity, we have to adhere to each individual country's rules on tax, hallmarking and customs.
So, with regret, until further notice our website is limited to selling to the UK, USA and Canada (where the rules haven't changed).
Thank-you to all of our European customers who've supported us over the years. I'm sure we'll figure something out, but for now it's just too much of a minefield. ...
