Customs and Brexit - Czech Republic

From 1 January 2021, the UK is no longer part of the EU’s single market and customs union and new rules apply. The UK extended the rules which only applied to non-EU postal items before, to include items received from the EU. Similarly, the EU now treats postal items from the UK as it did non-EU items before. This means there may be changes to how you send and receive items from abroad.

As of 1 July 2021, items imported to the EU with a value of €22 or less became liable for VAT.

For more information on how to send goods to EU countries more effectively click here.

You are responsible for checking postal restrictions and prohibitions for your destination.

There are rules about what Royal Mail will carry and each country has their own restrictions which may differ, so it’s important to check both.
