Brexit, VAT and Deliveries to the EU
July 22nd 2021
As of July 1st 2021, VAT is payable on all UK sales to countries in the European Union (EU). To make things worse, in their efforts to make small businesses dependent upon expensive accountancy corporations, both the EU and UK have made a complete mess of VAT collection. For low value orders, this leaves us without a viable solution for exporting to the EU. For example, a CD that costs £20 with postage and VAT on site could cost you around £30 with handling charges collected before delivery by customs. Because we cannot warn all customers of this risk, all on site sales to EU addresses are blocked.
Until we find a long term solution, single CD’s are currently cheapest on our Discogs listings, which account for VAT on our behalf. Contact us if a CD you want is unavailable there, we will list it for you.
Larger orders are still more economical direct from TimbaMerchant. To receive a quote, please contact us telling us the CD’s you want and your country.
