BREXIT

From 1st January 2021 and the end of the transition period the way we ship orders to our European customers has changed. 

Orders shipped from the UK to Europe are now subject to customs clearance. TRS&Co ships orders using two different shipping methods depending on the size of the order. 

ORDERS SHIPPING BY COURIER (UPS) IN CARTONS 

  • All orders are now subject to VAT/TVA at your country's domesic rate and are delivered DDU (delivered duty unpaid).
  • VAT/TVA is collected by the Courier and must be paid in advance of delivery. These charges may be detailed as government or customs charges. 
  • VAT/TVA can be reclaimed in your tax returns the same is if you were buying goods or services domestically.
  • In order to avoid delays to your shipment, please follow the tracking number we provide when your order ships. You will be provided with a link once your order clears customs and any VAT/TVA can be paid on-line.  

ORDERS SHIPPING ON PALLETS BY ROAD   

  • Orders over our carriage paid threshold of €1750 generally ship by pallet using DDP (Delivered Duty Paid). 
  • The carrier does not collect VAT/TVA on these orders but you will generally be required to declare the shipments value in your tax returns.

To expedite shipment of your orders please ensure you provide the following information when you place your order so we can ensure that all shipping documentation is correct. 
 
1. A contact name, phone number and email address for our carrier. 
2. Your VAT/TVA number. 
3. Your EORI number (Economic Operators Registration and Identification number). If you do not already have an EORI number this can usually be applied for on-line and should be a quick and simple process.
 
If you are contacted by any of our shipping partners regarding additional paperwork requirements for customs clearance please email us immediately and we will do our best to provide these directly.  
 
Most of the products that TRS&Co sells do not qualify for duties or tariffs although there may be a few exceptions where a small amount of duty will be incurred. The free trade agreement between the UK and Europe means that there are no duties and tariffs on most goods originating from the UK.
