EU VAT CHANGES EXPLAINED: EFFECTIVE 1 JULY 2021
Removal of the €22 import VAT exemption
What does it mean?
From 1st July 2021, VAT will be charged on all commercial goods imported into the EU, regardless of value. This means if you reside in the EU, you will have to pay VAT for parcels regardless of value. VAT will apply at the rate set in your country of residence.
Which shipping services are affected?
All shipping options will be affected. Customers in the EU will be subject to the VAT charged by their country plus a handling fee depending on the shipping provider. Should you have questions about the VAT handling charges, it would be best to contact your local shipping provider for accurate advice.
The Jelly House provides multiple shipping options to our customers:
Registered airmail will be handled by DHL eCommerce for the 1st half of the shipment. Once the shipment reaches your country, your local postal service will handle the final mile delivery. Any handling fee will also be decided and collected by your local postal service. As a benchmark, we have been informed that most postal services charge €8 handling fee + VAT for items <€150. This may vary depending on your country. For accurate rates, please check with your local postal service
Courier mail will be handled by FedEx. FedEx will typically charge a handling fee of 2.5% on the combined duty and VAT value or €15, whichever is greater + VAT. This may vary depending on your country. Please check your local FedEx website or customer service for accurate fees.
