Shipments to UK after Brexit


Many people are concerned about shipments from and to UK after UK officially leaved the EU on 31.01.2020. We also were quite uncertain should we continue to ship UK parcels as intra-EU shipments, should we charge VAT or we have to do export paperwork like for shipments to Switzerland and Norway.

We asked our customs how to handle UK shipments and today we got reply that there is transition period to 31.12.2020 and everything stays as is till then. So we will keep shipping to UK as it’s still in EU till end of the year.

    Thanks for your email… No problems, it will not stop me from ordering from Olimex in the future !… (Maybe eventually you may be able to use an agent in the UK like Farnell Electronics, or Conrad, or RS Components… There are always ways around things !) Greetings – John Bolton Emitron Intl…
