About VAT for Customers Outside the EU and UK

For dispatch to countries outside the EU and the UK, you may be charged VAT or other taxes, as required by the country of delivery or alternatively, the packages may be assessed for import or customs fees, depending on the laws of the country concerned.

If customs or import duties are levied, these are payable once the package reaches the destination country. For certain destination countries, Amazon.co.uk will estimate and collect an import fees deposit during checkout. These funds will be used to pay import fees on your behalf to the appropriate authorities, when your package reaches the destination country. The estimated import fees deposit will be displayed in the order summary in the checkout.

If an estimated import fees deposit isn't displayed in the checkout order summary, additional charges for customs clearance will have to be borne by the recipient. We have no control over these charges and can't predict what they might be. Since customs policies vary widely from country to country, you may want to contact your local customs office for further information.
