Before You Ship to Germany from the UK

While our couriers are happy to take on the difficult paperwork, we always recommend looking at Germany’s customs requirements to make sure you’re not sending any restricted items that could delay your package. And when you send a parcel to Germany from the UK, it’s a good idea to avoid Germany’s non-working days (Saturday and Sunday) and public holidays, to give your parcel the best chance of arriving on time.

Customs and Posting to Germany After Brexit

Since July 1st 2021, anything you send to Germany from the UK will be subject to EU VAT unless it is a gift up to the value of £38*/€45 (the value for gifts includes the cost of shipping). For example, if you send a book that costs £10 and shipping costs you £7.33, the total value is £17.33 - so you won’t have to pay EU VAT. Find out more about sending gifts to the EU
