BREXIT and how VAT is charged
Some changes took effect in January 2021, targeted mainly at shipments being sold to individuals worth up to $135₤ (Approx. $250 AUD) Get Freighted had to adjust their communications so that all clients were aware of anything they had to do differently. Primarily this meant asking our clients had to ask clients for a VAT Number to declare on their commercial invoice. Samples and Gifts exempt from this criterion.
