The buyer is responsible for return postage costs and any loss in value if an item isn't returned in original condition.

Will I have to pay customs / Duty?

If you are outside the UK, you as the buyer are the importer of record and as such responsible for paying any applicable custom duties, import taxes and handling fees. Each country has varying import duty allowances and costs, so please refer to your relevant government website for information.

If your order is too large to fit into one parcel, this parcel will be split into multiple packages, which may result in additional fees. Please inform us before placing the order if you need the order in one package as additional postage charges may apply.


EU Customers: 

As of January 1st, 2021 the UK has left the EU which means buying with us will change a tiny bit!

  • From 1 July 2‌0‌2‌1, all commercial goods imported into the EU will be subject to VAT.
  • If you are a VAT registered business, then purchases from Petershams will follow the process of any other non-EU purchases you make. This basically means that we will not charge you VAT. However you will be charged import VAT by Customs at your local VAT rate, which you will be able to recover to the extent that the cost relates to taxable activities. So, full VAT recovery will be possible if your business is fully taxable.
  • If you are not VAT registered, then unlike previously, we will not charge you VAT. However, you will be charged the VAT (at your local rate) by Customs (or courier service). 
  • You will also be liable for customs clearing fees and duty. These fees vary from country to country.
