      International Shipping Services & Costs

      European customers & EORI

      For business customers in Europe we now need your EORI number please so there aren't any delays at customs.  You can enter this in the notes box at checkout or email us at hello@blackvelvetstyling.com

      If you don't have an EORI number please use a residential name and address as the shipping address and don't include your business name in the shipping information. 

      The UK left the EU with a trade deal which allows trade between the UK and the EU without tariffs or quotas. However, local taxes and charges can sometimes be applied locally to you, and will differ in each country. 

      Please check any local taxes/customs charges in your country before ordering as we can't be held responsible for any charges applied after shipping.  

       

      VAT 

      UK VAT is included in our prices.  For orders outside of the UK, VAT is not charged.

      However, VAT, duties or customs charges may be applied locally - please check for your country before ordering. 

      Especially if we are delivering to a business address or a commercial/business customer, import VAT may be charged in your local country.
