UK online shopping sites shipping internationally post-Brexit will not be directly facing additional charges on goods they send abroad. In most cases, the customer is liable for covering the VAT and the customs duties. At Eurosender we have gathered the necessary customs information that anyone selling online after Brexit from the UK should know about. Post-Brexit online shopping deliveries do not have to be a hurdle when you have the best courier companies and customs brokers by your side.
Online stores selling to European customers will not be facing any direct charges on the goods they are offering unless they decide to take upon them part of the additional shipping cost and possible import fees by lowering the profit on their goods.
As of 1st of July 2021, some UK sellers will have the option to charge and collect the VAT at the point of sale. By doing so, UK sellers exempt EU customers from paying VAT to customs in the country of importation. VAT will be then declared and paid to the respective Member State via a One-Stop-Shop. From this date on, all goods must pay for VAT as the exemption for small consignments with a value up to £15 (or €22) will no longer be valid.
As long as the business selling the goods is registered in the UK for a UK VAT number, the VAT can be charged at the point of sale instead of being charged to the customer upon delivery or importation. In this case, VAT will be calculated based on the sale price of the goods rather than the import value which may include also shipping costs and other fees. After the 1st of July, VAT charges will be applicable to all commercial goods, and the exemption rule on items under £15 (or €22) will no longer be valid.
Please bear in mind that UK businesses need an EORI number after Brexit from any EU country for imports and exports.
There will be no customs duties if you are buying products from the UK or Europe after Brexit for orders up to £135 (or €150). Orders whose value is above the mentioned will undergo customs charges, and the amount will depend on the type of goods you are importing from the UK or from Europe.
Information on VAT and customs
There will be some important updates from the 1st of January 2022 in the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement on how are the rules of origin determined for the goods you are shipping.
Some additional proof of origin documentation will have to be provided in order to benefit from the 0% duty rate when shipping from Ireland to the UK with DHL, TNT and UPS. Therefore, the statement of origin will no longer be enough, but you should provide some of the following:

It is important to note that the packing list should contain information about the sender, receiver, the item description, the value of each unit and the total value. Additionally, it should be signed by the owner of the goods.
Many people were buying products from online marketplaces from countless UK stores. Most stores will still send parcels to the EU after Brexit; however, the prices may not be as appealing. Either the customer will have to bear the additional costs or the store. Let us consider both options:
As in most cases, the solutions may not be favourable to both parties and the following should be expected:
