I’m based in the Channel Islands and have heard there are two ways to pay the UK import VAT through my local parcel operator, is this true?

Yes, if you are based in the Channel Islands and choose to pay the UK import VAT to your parcel operator, you can either:

  • pay the UK import VAT to your national parcel operator – Jersey Post and Guernsey Post have agreements with HMRC to pay the UK import VAT for you
  • pay the UK import VAT to a parcel operator with an agreement in place that their carrier will pay HMRC on your behalf
