It's a German site but would expect some kind of message even if it just says they're avoiding us.
Seems to have removed UK from EU options but not listed anywhere else.

Lo and behold the invoice just arrived this morning, £43.67 duties and £20 admin fee. Cry Exactly one month after delivery.

I got stung by FedEx too. VAT, Duty and admin fee totalling £90. Makes me seethe thinking about all brexiteer fuckbags.

Ordered a pair of trousers from Acne's website yesterday morning and arrived here this morning. Customs already paid and free returns included.

If I order something for €160, what would likely be the charges I receive?

If the €160 includes VAT then just customs duty (which varies depending on what it is, usually less than 20%) and any processing fee from the courier.

If the €160 doesn't include VAT then you'd pay UK VAT (i.e. 20%) plus any customs duty (as above, it varies) and any courier processing fee.

I've always had this when ordering direct from Acne, but I didn't expect it to be the case (the shipping time) this time around post-Brexit.

This is so fucking confusing

So if I order something for about £150 from Sweden to the uk, do I need to ask them to remove the VAT as I’ll have to pay it upon receipt?

+whatever they decide in customs / admin charges etc

Or am I just getting stung for double tax

yes but retailers dont seem willing to remove vat (i assume that is because they need to register with HMRC?)… i have spoken to our legacy about it but they wont remove VAT Cry

Are Acne not renowned for huge profit margins so they can afford this? Effectively saying Acne isn't worth what you pay sorry Laughing out loud

£190 for the trousers I got seems fair to me considering the majority of other brands who sit in the same style and aesthetic of Acne charge more.

Bought some jewellery off ln-cc and just got the tracking information and it’s being shipped from Italy… which was not indicated anywhere during checkout. Being sent by fedex, am I fucked here?
