Will I have to pay customs charges in my country?

When goods are shipped within the European Union there are no customs charges as the relevant VAT has already been paid.

Orders placed from outside the EU are not charged VAT and may be subject to import duties and taxes. These may be levied once the goods reach your country. It is a legal requirement that we declare the full value of the goods (excluding delivery charges) on all parcels to be delivered outside the EU. For further details of customs charges please consult your own customs authorities. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they will be. We are unable to reimburse any customs costs incurred.
