EU SALES & BREXIT ANNOUNCEMENTS

This page is for up to date announcements about changes to ordering from Bearmach/UK following Brexit.

EU WEB CUSTOMERS (RETAIL): SHIPPING, DUTIES & TAXES UPDATE

Following Brexit we have had to make some changes to the way our goods are sold to you to ensure we comply with the new regulations. Further information can be found below but if you still have queries please use our Web Chat to speak to a member of our team or contact us using the Contact Page. We are here to help!

Shipping Method:

  • We are in the process of re-introducing the Delivery by Road option that was disabled in December when France shut the boarder due to COVID-19. Please note that the courier networks are extremely busy so we cannot currently guarantee transit times.
  • You may have noticed an increase in Express courier costs. This is due to DHL imposing a €9.50 + VAT customs clearance fee per order.

 

Duties & Taxes:

  • We advise you to pay duties and taxes at checkout rather than on delivery as we have secured preferred rates for our customers. Opting to pay on arrival may increase the cost to you.
  • These costs include in-country VAT that we now have to collect on orders into European countries. You will be provided with an invoice that proves that the required VAT has been paid and you will not be asked to pay any additional charges.
  • Duties are now applicable on parts where the Country of Origin is not UK or EU. Vehicle parts carry an average of 4% and if applicable will be charged at checkout.

 

Here is an example of the checkout page:

We appreciate you may have questions before you order as things are now different and welcome any questions.


TRADE CUSTOMERS WHO WISH TO DROP SHIP INTO THE EU: IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In order for us to continue to drop ship to your customers following Brexit you need to be aware of the following:

• We will be sending a commercial invoice with the goods that will be our invoice to you, our Trade customer.
• The terms of shipment will be DAP meaning that the end user will be contacted by the courier to pay the duties and taxes including in country VAT.
• This charge will also include an administration fee from the courier.


EU TRADE CUSTOMERS: EXTRA CHARGES

Following Brexit, there will now be some extra charges when ordering from the UK/Bearmach.

The possible reasons for extra charges can be:

  • Country of Origin. Duties (which can be around up to 4%) may be payable if the country of origin of the part you are ordering is not within the UK or the EU. You can find the country of origin of a product on our Trade Portal before ordering. Here you will also find suitable alternative parts which may have different countries of origin with no extra duties payable.

  • Carrier Documentation and Clearing of Goods.
  • In-Country VAT. Orders may be subject to in-country VAT however we believe you will be able to reclaim this amount through your usual in-country VAT return process. You may also be able to defer your VAT payments to help with cash flow. Please contact your local business support about in-country VAT deferment.

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND TRADE CUSTOMERS: NEW ORDER CUT OFF TIMES & FREIGHT CHARGES

Order Cut Off Times:

The cut off times for orders going to customers based in the Republic of Ireland are now:

Monday to Thursday: 1.30pm
Friday: 12.00pm

This will allow us to create the extra paperwork for shipping following the end of the Brexit transition period.

Changes to Freight Charges:

Due to Brexit and the increase in freight costs implemented by our carriers, we have had to take the decision to make some unavoidable changes to our freight charges.

Going forward, we will regrettably be unable to offer the same delivery charges that you have been used to. The fixed delivery charge for orders containing no ugly parts will be £35 per order.

Thank you for your understanding. We really appreciate your support and continued business and hope to make this transition as smooth as possible for everyone!
