Upcoming regulation changes for businesses selling to the UK
I'm writing as a courtesy to advise of some changes to United Kingdom (UK) customs regulations that are soon to be introduced as a result of the UK leaving the European Union. All sellers, including online retailers, sellers on marketplaces and international businesses selling directly to UK consumers by phone or mail order, are likely to be impacted by these changes.
From 1 January 2021, the value-added tax (VAT) applicable to commercial items valued at £15 – £135 entering the UK will now be expanded to £0 – £135 (inclusive), meaning the £15 lower limit is abolished. The VAT on these items will also now have to be pre-paid.
If you sell goods to customers in the UK, from January 2021 you'll need to pre-pay VAT to avoid additional costs. To do this, you'll need to ensure you have:
a GB Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number before shipping your goods
the HS Tariff Code required to make a customs declaration and calculate duties on an import
the customs value of goods – needed to make a customs declaration and calculate duties on import.
We recommend you prepare for the application of the VAT scheme to your business by considering the changes and where appropriate applying for an EORI number in advance. It can take up to a week to get one, so register early.
Please read through the additional information and useful links on our website, to see how these changes may affect your business. You'll also find the latest international delivery times and our last sending dates to deliver for your customers in time for Christmas.
As always, we continue to review our estimated delivery times on auspost.com.au, and we'll advise you of any important delays or improvements to the network.
