Brexit Information for our EU Customers
Important information for our EU customers.
We are very happy to announce that our EU customers will not be paying any more for a Mason bicycle than they did before Brexit.
As we have our frames made in Italy, we use various Italian/EU made parts are used on our bicycles and because we assemble all bikes and carry out final prep in the UK, they fall within 'Rules on Origin' regulations and we're able to export with these preferential rates (0%).
Please note that the following applies only to our framesets and complete bicycles. Spare parts and accessories that we supply, for example seatposts and axles, do not originate in the EU and as such will be charged 4% duty approximately. EU Bundles: You will not be charged duty on the frameset, but will liable for ~4% duty on the wheelset portion of this bundle when you import it.
How does customs/import work when buying from the European Union?
The ordering process is straightforward but with a couple of small differences.
1. Our website prices include UK VAT. This means that when you complete your checkout you will pay 20% LESS than our stated prices.
For example, a £3175 bike will cost :
- £2645.83 + shipping + handling charges.
- Approx. 20% VAT* when you receive your order
*When your order is received by customs in your country you will be contacted by them around the time of your delivery to pay the VAT upon delivery, which is around 20%. You will not pay any import duties or tariffs.
So, the total price you pay for your Mason will be very similar to the prices we state on our website, albeit with a difference of exchange rate.
