On the 1st January 2021 the Brexit transition period ended and the UK left the EU single market. This means that the free movement of goods and services has ended and new rules apply.
If you order a Swim Secure product from a country in the EU, the order will count as an import into the EU.
All prices shown on the swimsecure.co.uk website include UK VAT (value-added tax) at 20%. VAT is not charged on sales outside the UK, so if you are ordering from outside the UK the 20% VAT will be removed from the total amount at checkout.
All items for delivery outside the UK are dispatched duty and VAT unpaid. We dispatch all international orders with the required customs declaration. Once items enter the EU they become liable for local VAT and any import duty that may be applicable.
Please be aware that you are responsible for any tax or duty payable when the goods arrive in your country. Your order may be delayed by customs authorities if they decide that you have to pay VAT and import duty.
Swim Secure have retailers throughout the EU. To avoid paying VAT and duty on your order use our stockist map to find your nearest Swim Secure retailer in the EU. If you live within the EU and order from a retailer that is also in the EU you will not be liable for any tax or duty and there will be no delay to your order.
