Now that the United Kingdom is no longer part of the European Union as of the 1st of January 2021, this means that when goods are imported from the UK, a customs declaration must be submitted for your shipment.
From 1 January 2021 Customs Declarations will be required for shipments between the European Union and Great Britain (and vice-versa). Although the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement refers to ‘zero tariffs’ (zero customs duties), this doesn’t replace the need to generate a Customs Declaration and so a Commercial or Pro-forma Invoice is required.
Duties and VAT on imports are also calculated by means of this declaration. This can lead to additional costs for you when shipping to the UK.
When shipping with Swyft, we will take care of all of this documentation and more. What you see is what you pay for with us (yes, the LKR 1,800 is inclusive of all customs duties and VAT charges).
