Brexit: Tripping over red tape

Due to the uncertainty surrounding Brexit we see no other option as to pause our webshop orders to the UK from 21 December 2020. We have disabled the UK as a destination until we are able to comply with the new rules. Click for more information.

UPDATE 14 April 2021: Our application for an UK VAT-number has been approved by HM Revenue and Customs. We reinstated the UK as a shipping destination. 

The main reason is the new UK VAT regime. Businesses selling goods to be imported into the UK with a value not exceeding £135 will be required to charge and collect any VAT due at the time of sale. Businesses selling goods to be imported into the UK will therefor be required to register for VAT in the UK


Further reading: EU firms refuse UK deliveries over Brexit tax changes.

Backstory: "The huge change in the collection of VAT was included in a 100-page bill that mainly focused on arrangements implementing the Northern Ireland protocol for business within the UK.

It was overlooked by MPs and peers who had very little time to scrutinise the bill and were assured in an explanatory memorandum from Jesse Norman, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, that the changes would have little impact on business."


We are ever so sorry. At this moment we don't know when we can ship to you directly.

Our b2b supply chain has not been broken it seems. To order our products from within the UK we kindly ask you to contact John Ayrey Die Casts or A&H Models.
