BREXIT, Shipping, Storage and CORONAVIRUS – COVID-19


Following  the signing of  the EU-UK trade and Cooperation Agreement on 30th December 2020 there will be no trade tariffs on goods moving between UK and EU countries.   

Our VAT is now set at 0% for commission and shipping for Bottles leaving the UK.  However, please note, that Import VAT will be levied on goods imported to EU countries from the UK.  The rate charged will be that set by your local customs authority and charged at the point of entry.

Under no circumstances will purchases returned to us due to unpaid Import VAT and other fees (where applicable) be refunded!

It is your responsibility to check your Local Custom, Duties, VAT and Restrictions prior to Bidding!


From 1st January 2021, a ‘BREXIT Surcharge’ is being added by courier providers and will be a minimum of £4.50 per shipment to the EU!


We anticipate delays in shipping to EU countries with the ongoing BREXIT and Coronavirus situation.
If you would like to ship your lots at a later date we will happily store them for 6 months FREE of charge.
