Changes to the United Kingdom's import laws following the finalization of Brexit have impacted how we sell to customers in the UK.
Sales to the UK will happen in one of two ways, depending on the price of the brooch and whether VAT (Value Added Tax) will be charged at the time of purchase or upon delivery:
- For brooches priced at less than or equal to the USD equivalent of £135, excluding shipping cost, orders will be processed through our old Etsy shop. Customers whose comments are drawn in a lottery who have entered the UK as their shipping destination will be sent a link to a reserved listing in the Etsy shop to complete their order, where they will pay VAT (Value Added Tax) at checkout. All of our usual policies apply to these sales.
- For brooches priced higher than the USD equivalent of £135, sales to UK lottery winners will be processed through a normal shop invoice and VAT will be charged at the border, meaning that the customer pays on receipt of the package. Customers who make a purchase through a shop invoice are still responsible for paying VAT, and packages returned for nonpayment of tax will be refunded minus the original shipping cost.
