The Little Green Bag is an online store located in the Netherlands. All parcels and packages are shipped from our warehouse in the Netherlands to several countries, including the UK. At The Little Green Bag, we choose to unburden our customers by handling the important formalities and paying the import VAT/duties that are due. This is why The Little Green Bag charges UK VAT with all online purchases.
To clarify further:
1. Goods worth more than £135: The Little Green Bag as a seller charges UK VAT to her customers. The Little Green Bag in turn pays HMRC the VAT and import duties that are due. You will NOT be charged any import duties at the delivery.
2. Goods worth £135 or less: The Little Green Bag as a seller charges UK VAT to her customers. The Little Green Bag in turn pays HMRC the VAT that is due.
The Little Green Bag continues to strive for a better and seamless customer experience whilst adhering to all regulatory obligations. For further information on the regulations regarding overseas deliveries, we kindly refer to HMRC's guidance about changes due to Brexit: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/vat-and-overseas-goods-sold-directly-to-customers-in-the-uk.
