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