Brexit and Democratique Socks
As an effect of Brexit starting December 31st 2020 and changes in the UK & EU's trade agreement customers living within the UK will no longer be charged VAT on their purchases from Democratique Socks.
Your orders will be shipped as DAP (Delivered at Place) service and you may be required to pay duties and taxes on your purchase when it arrives. Our courier will contact you in advance of delivering the goods. We use various couriers like UPS, DHL, FEDEX and more depending on the best rates. As a result of the extra paperwork by the couriers due to Brexit rules the couriers have raised the shipping costs to UK. See rates here.
The charges is on the UK side and beyond our control and can´t tell you what the cost might be as customs policies and import duties vary from time to time. Consult your local customs office for current charges before you order to avoid charges you were not expecting.
The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.
We´re really sorry for the inconvenience this must cause but again its beyond our control. Contact us if you have any questions.
