NON-UK Orders

If you order from our website from outside the United Kingdom, your shipment may be subject to a custom duty and import tax paid to your country of delivery. Every country is different. 

Usually, the taxes are calculated by adding the goods value, shipping cost and any additional costs. Then multiply the total by the destination country's applicable Duty rate and VAT rate.

Example: 

Lets say someone buys goods from our website for a value of 100 GBP and also pays £15 shipping cost as an example.

Let’s assume the Duty rate in the customer delivery country is 4% and VAT rate is 20%

Then: 

Duty = 4% of £100= £4

VAT = 20% of (Your Country Duty [£4] + Shipping [£15] + Cost of the goods [£100]) = £23.80

Therefore the estimated Duty and VAT payable for this example is £4 + £23.80 + any fees the shipping company may charge on top for processing this on your behalf. 


The shipping company(we currently use UPS) will contact you once the package is shipped from us to request payment of import taxes. UPS calculates the correct taxes for the package and applies an additional fee for processing this on you behalf. Then, UPS contacts you to pay the amount before they can deliver the package to you, however, you may be offered an option to pay upon delivery in cash. If you’re asked to pay before delivery date, treat this matter with urgency, as every hour lost may delay your package.

Please note, if you don’t respond to the shipping company about the import taxes payment within a few days, the package may be disposed or returned to us, therefore, you may lose the package or incur additional charges. 

Important: When you’re contacted by the shipping company(UPS) about the package, make sure to check their email address which should have a domain ‘ ups.com ‘
Also, compare the shipment tracking number and other package related details before responding to UPS and before making any payment. This way, you make sure you pay the taxes for the correct package. 

If you buy from outside the United Kingdom, you will not be charged VAT by Scootera Ltd (the prices you pay on our website are excluding VAT if you buy from outside the UK).
