Brexit update 2021 - AutoNorma

BREXIT UPDATE

Effective immediately starting January 1st, 2021

Dear Autonorma.co.uk Customers,

Due to recent developments regarding Brexit and the United Kingdom no longer being a member country of the European Union, all orders with delivery address in England, Scotland, and Wales* are now released from the VAT tax and are subject to the import tax which is to be paid to our carrier partners DHL or DPD conveniently online before receiving our package with the goods.

The standard VAT tax rate in the Czech Republic is 21%, whereas the import tax imposed by the British govt. currently averages at 24%

For more information on Brexit and the Import Tax to the UK see: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/vat-imports-acquisitions-and-purchases-from-abroad

Minimum order value 

Due to newly erected post-Brexit tax legislation, all orders with delivery to the UK must have minimum value of £136 to be fulfilled. Orders to the UK with total value lower than £136 are going to be automatically cancelled and refunded. 

Northern Ireland

*Northern Ireland is still treated as a part of the EU, which means that all orders with a delivery address in Northern Ireland remain unchanged by Brexit; these orders continue to be a subject to the 21% VAT tax with no customs fee.
Should you order on our website as a resident of Northern Ireland, please choose country Northern Ireland as a country of delivery.

Refundable deposit and Collections 

As of 1 January 2021, our spedition partner DPD, which facilitates the old core collection service from our customers, has suspended all of its collections and pickups in the UK until further notice. This is yet another ramification of the recent Brexit event, and we sincerely apologize for the caused inconvenience as such matters are out of our control. 

Therefore, in light of these recent changes, the old core collection/pickup option is no longer available on our website. The only way to return your old core is to send it to us at your own expense. 

Additionally, your refundable deposit no longer expires after 30 days since the receipt of our product due to these extraordinary circumstances. The time period to return your old part has been extended to 60 days.

Should you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us on info@autonorma.co.uk and we will be more than happy to provide further guidance.

Thank you very much for your understanding,

Team Autonorma.co.uk
