Customs Payment & Brexit
Cheshire Antiques Consultant  operates on a Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) basis which means that the International buyer is responsible for any import duties, taxes & customs which may be necessary to release an order from international customs.
Following the UK leaving the EU on 1st January 2021 (BREXIT) there have been some changes to customs & duty charges for EU customers. Tax and import duty varies from country to country so we recommend you check with your local tax office to see if any fees will be payable.
If the customer refuses to pay any duty and customs charges and the parcel is returned to sender all shipping charges will be deducted from any refund.
We would also require The buyer receiver's VAT/Tax ID number (CUIT or CUIL or CDI in Argentina) is required for clearance of goods. Please ensure that you include it when you order at checkout leave a message or email us. Shipments without this information will not be cleared by Customs and will be transited to a general cargo warehouse rather than delivered door-to-door, incurring delays and additional costs. Shipments not cleared from the warehouse within 30 days will be returned to sender, which will take up to 90 days.
We highly recommend Transglobalexpress, Convelio, Pack and Send also Williams & Hill forwarding Ltd for high value or heavy fragile items.
