European Union Shipping Changes
Posted on June 30 2021
Are you ordering from the EU? Please head to our Etsy shop, where we can process your order with the new tax system.
Etsy will handle the new EU taxes, so your parcel will be delivered with Tax paid, meaning it should not get held up in customs.
SInce 1st July 2021, the way VAT (Value Added Tax) on orders to the European Union from the UK has changed. All sales under 150 Euros will now need to pay VAT during checkout - yes even a £5 order will need to pay Tax!
By prepaying the Tax, it means parcels will clear customs and get delivered quicker. It also prevents unexpected handling charges on parcels, which have been seen from 1st January 2021 up to June. This will provide a better service to our EU customers.
However, with this new system comes a lot of extra paperwork, monthly EU Tax returns and monthly fees...
To enable us to comply with the new rules in the best way, our Baking Time Club website will no longer process shipping to the 27 EU countries below. Instead, we ask customers from these countries to order via our Etsy Shop.
If you live in Europe but not in the European Union, you can continue to order via the website as normal.
