When will the changes be effective from?

March 15, 2019

If the United Kingdom (UK) leaves the European Union (EU) without a deal, these changes will be introduced from 11pm GMT on 29 March 2019. This means sellers outside the UK (this includes the EU, outside of the EU and the Channel Islands) must pay the UK import VAT for any parcels they send to UK buyers after this date and time, even if the goods were sold before.
