IOSS Enabled For EU Orders
The EU’s Import One-Stop Shop (IOSS) scheme
Import One-Stop Shop (IOSS) is a simplified reporting model applied to sales made to EU customers in the 27 EU member states, where a consignment value of the shipment of the goods is below €150.
Introduced on the 1st of July 2021 and enabled by us for all EU orders from 9th October 2021, the system works in the following way on our website, once you have logged into your account.
• If the combined value of the products in your cart are equal to or below €150, VAT will be included at the point of sale and you will not be charged any fees when your order arrives.
• Once the €150 threshold is exceeded VAT will be removed from the items in your cart and from this point onwards when your order ships you will be liable for local VAT and duties.
What are the advantages of the IOSS?
IOSS facilitates the process making it easier for the buyer, who is only charged at the time of purchase, and therefore does not face any surprise fees when the goods are delivered—in essence, creating a more efficient ‘Green Channel’, with quick and easy customs clearance, resulting in no nasty surprises and fewer shipping delays.
