import, export & all that

Post by imthetourguy » Fri Jan 01, 2021 6:22 pm

I have an EU pallet with MT parts here in Sweden that I’ll be selling soon, but I imagine there is duty to be paid if someone in GB would buy them. Swedish tax & import authorities say that they consider N.I. as the EU, so perhaps I can send it to my Dad. But he informed me that there is tax/duty between N.I and GB.

Anybody wise on this subject? Or is there anyone in the EU who is interested?

It is day 1 of the new rules here, which were only agreed a few days ago so this is all really new stuff . I will need to look at it. As i understand it Northern Ireland is staying within a lot of EU rules , but if the goods come into England Wales or Scotland ( either direct from Sweden/EU , or indirectly via NI ,. Its an import from EU to non EU country so may be tax issues on entry.

I assume you are selling these items as a private seller, not as a Swedish VAT registered trader. .?

I will have a read up and see what i can find out .

Thanks for that. Yep, many unknowns. and yes, private sales. Isnt there a three month grace period between N.I and GB?

I’ll throw it up later with everything listed out, but it’s all stripped & packaged into an EU pallet for ease of transport.

Ok this is how i believe it works on a private sale from Sweden to GB (meaning England Scotland Wales) . Customs declaration to complete on shipment , and buyer to expect to pay UK VAT @ 20% of value plus possible import duty to get it cleared of customs on entry to GB.
I think your best course of action is use one of the international couriers (DHL, UPS etc) as they would be doing this all the time and know what needs doing , and would be able to handle the admin , work out duty , as well as moving the goods .

( The club bought some shop stock a few years ago from the far east and we had to pay import taxes to get it into the country , so its the same sort of principle now bringing items in from EU )

From Sweden to a buyer in Northern Ireland i dont think is a problem , provided the goods stay in NI. But If they then move accross from NI to GB then customs, VAT likely to arise .
The 3 months grace i think only applies to traders

Hope that helps .
