EU SHIPPING FROM 1ST JULY 2021
Due to changes around VAT, import tax and handling fees to Europe and no clear pathway for smaller business to pay on these charges directly to the EU we are offering 2 options for puchasing from us:
1. You can purchase from this website as previously with the clear understanding that all possible VAT, import taxes and handling fees will be paid by you, on your end as per your country's new agreements with the UK
2. You can email us on email@example.com. Please use 'EU Order' in the subject line of your email and clearly state the yarn, colour and quantities you'd like to order.
We will then raise an invoice for you in Etsy - a platform that is currently acting as an EU broker for small businesses, charging any VAT, import tax and handling charges upfront at checkout. You will receive the Etsy invoice for the order with all the charges clearly included and will not be charged any extra on receipt in your country.
We are sincerely hoping that this will be a temporary measure and further clarification will come soon from the UK Gov but this is the best workaround we can come up with from a small business such as ours at present.
Thank you so much for bearing with us at this challenging time - Angela
