CUSTOMS & DUTIES (INTERNATIONAL ORDERS ONLY)
We cannot guarantee that you will or will not be charged any customs taxes or duties on delivery of your order.
Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country (and each country has its own thresholds for imports).
UK orders under £135 have VAT collected at checkout. Orders over this value are charged VAT on import prior to delivery. Please note that we cannot estimate any other duties applicable.
From the 1st July 2021 the European Union's VAT threshold of €22 was removed and VAT is now applicable on all orders. Please note that we DO NOT collect this at checkout and it will be charged on import and will be payable prior to delivery of your order (some carriers may charge fees for the facilitation of this collection).
Any import fees, taxes or duties are the responsibility of the recipient and must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. BIG & LITTLE DOGS is not liable for any of these fees.
If you do refuse to pay the fees that are charged and the order is returned to us, any fees that are applicable for the return of the parcel to us will be deducted from the refund of your order (please note original shipping fees cannot be refunded either).
Also note, as a registered business we are unable to ship international orders as a ‘gift’ and all shipments must be declared as ‘merchandise’.
