It is the customers responsibility to research their own countries import law regarding restricted product.

Important Tax Information

Value Added Tax (VAT)

VAT is a tax for sales to residents and businesses in the United Kingdom.

VAT is already included in the price of products; this is removed for orders to the rest of the world at checkout, including the EU from the 1st of January 2021 due to Brexit.

We will not declare a lower value on the shipping invoice as this is illegal. Customs declarations are submitted electronically automatically by our order management system and reflect the true value and contents of every order.

It is important that you ensure the goods in your order can be legally imported to your home country.

Please check what your country’s threshold is for levying import charges prior to ordering.

What is VAT?

Value-added tax, known to everybody in the United Kingdom (UK) as VAT, is a type of consumption tax. It’s called this because it is a tax on how much of something you consume or use. The more you buy, the more you pay in taxation.

The VAT that you pay when buying online from LVE Vapor UK has already been included in the advertised price when appropriate. Most of our customers do not need to think about it.

VAT can fluctuate and there is no maximum limit that can be set by the government.

United Kingdom 20% VAT is not added to orders to customers outside of the UK

When we export your goods outside of the UK we will include an invoice that details the cost of the product and shipping. Your customs authority will assess whether any local or national sales tax should be applied and, if relevant, an import duty is payable along with any duty. You may also have to pay an administration fee.

For customers in the USA, the US Customs and Border Protection Service says:

“International Postal Service: Merchandise shipped through the international postal service is forwarded upon its arrival in the United States to one of U.S. Customs and Border Protection International Mail Branches for clearance. If the item is less than $650 in value and is not subject to a quota or is not a restricted or prohibited item, a CBP official will usually prepare the paperwork for importing it, assess the proper duty, and release it for delivery. This procedure is generally referred to as a mail entry.”

BREXIT Changes

Up until the 1st of January 2021 The UK was part of the European Union which meant we would include and collect VAT At the point of sale for EU customers on behalf of HMRC.

The UK’s exit from the EU means that we no longer collect VAT at checkout, so those of you that are regular customers will see our prices no longer include VAT.

However, and this is important. Customers in the EU that previously benefited from paying VAT at checkout will be liable for import VAT and or import duty at their countries import tax rate. 

Please check with your local authority before ordering to confirm what taxes will be applied on import to your country.
