DHL Express Shipping

When DHL Express is selected as a shipping method, the shipping cost is an automatic estimate from DHL. The actual cost may be higher due to the size of the item to be shipped. In the event that the shipping cost is higher, we will require you to pay the additional cost of the item, or we will do our best to offer an alternative shipping option.

VAT & Shipping to UK after Brexit

We try to offer the best rates of shipping to the UK. If the subtotal of your goods (excluding VAT and shipping costs) is less than €157 (135 GBP as of 7/1/2021), we will charge 20% UK VAT on your order.

If the subtotal of your goods (excluding VAT and shipping costs) is equal to or more than €157 (135 GBP as of 7/1/2021), we will not charge you VAT on your order, but you will have to pay the VAT to the courier company (in most cases DHL) once the goods have arrived in the UK.

With DHL Parcel, the customs clearance cost is collected at our website checkout. The customs clearance cost is a surcharge levied by the UK government for the goods to be allowed into the UK. It is not VAT.

DHL Express does not include the customs clearance cost or any other additional duties and taxes levied by the UK government.

Due to fluctuating exchange rates, it is possible that you may have been charged VAT by Cross & Woods, and charged VAT in the UK. If this happens, we will refund the VAT that you paid to Cross & Woods on your order upon your proof of payment of VAT to the courier.
