Brexit and Amazon UK
Some people seem to think that Brexit made shopping on Amazon UK more expensive for Irish residents – but in most cases there has been no change to prices.
There is no extra VAT to pay after Brexit. (Amazon charges Irish VAT at checkout).
There may be duty charges to pay on some items but only when your order is over €150 and the items are not of UK origin.
Note: Amazon Prime members do not get free delivery from Amazon Germany.
