Just Riding Along is based in York, UK but our wheels are popular all over the world. We are often asked about delivery charges and taxes which are applied when we send our wheels to other countries so here is a quick summary.
Brexit update – January 2021
Since 1st January 2021, the UK is no longer part of the European Union. This means that orders shipped to EU countries are now treated much the same as orders shipped to “rest of world”. VAT (at the UK rate of 20%) is no longer charged on orders shipping to any EU country. All our prices shown as default on our website include VAT, and this is taken off when you select a country outside the UK (at the checkout stage).
Tax and shipping
These are calculated on the location the wheels are being sent to, not the billing address of the customer.
Tax and shipping costs are displayed at the checkout, before you pay. You will need to have selected your delivery country before you can see accurate costs.
Within the UK
If we are sending the wheels anywhere within the UK, there is one standard shipping rate. All our prices shown on the website include UK VAT (20% at the time of writing this). We supply a VAT receipt with all our orders.
Within the European Union
The rules are (since January 1st 2021) now the same as shipping to other countries outside the EU. So VAT (20%) will be removed from your order at the final checkout stage when you select any EU country. When you receive the parcel there may be a small fee to pay, and you may be charged VAT at your local rate. We expect this to change at the beginning of July 2021, when we will be able to register for VAT in the EU using the new “OSS” scheme – from that time, all orders will include VAT at your local rate and there will be no additional fees to pay (we hope).
Within Europe (but outside the EU)
When you choose a delivery country outside the EU, the UK VAT will be removed from your order and the price paid will be reduced by this amount (currently 20%). There may be charges to pay (local tax/duty) when you receive the parcel – this will vary by country. Shipping is usually more expensive – around £40 for example to Norway or Switzerland.
Rest of world
We can ship to almost any country in the world. If your country is not listed in our destinations please contact us and we will add it. Shipping outside of the UK and Europe usuall costs around £70 but the 20% VAT (UK sales tax) will be subtracted from your order once you select a shipping country outside the EU. Some countries’ customs will charge you for duty and/or local sales taxes when your parcel arrives, this depends on your local rules. For example, most shipments to the US have no extra charges applied at the receiving end.
