Importing low value items into the UK
Goods under £15 imported into the UK do not incur any VAT or duty. Goods under £135 are considered low value and therefore only incur 20% VAT and no customs duty, therefore the most you will pay for any item under £135 is £27.
Importing items over £135 into the UK
If your item is over £135, then it may be subject to UK duty and 20% VAT. To check how much the recipient will have to pay, check using the UK governments Tariff Code checker. If charges are due, the carrier will contact the recipient prior to delivery to request payment.
Clearance charges for dutiable shipments
Every carrier charges a fee for clearing dutiable goods through UK customs. Here's a breakdown of the charges by carrier:
DHL: £11.00 or 2.5% of the total Duty and/or VAT incurred, whichever is the greater.
UPS: £11.50 or 2.5% of the total Duty and/or VAT incurred, whichever is the greater.
Fedex: 12.00 or 2.5% of the total Duty and/or VAT incurred, whichever is the greater.

We’re helping the UK exporters
As a partner of the Exporting is Great campaign, ParcelHero is committed to supporting UK industry and the government-led drive to increase global exports. If you’re a business who is interested in exporting or is already exporting, then you will know what a significant pain point managing returns from foreign destinations is. ParcelHero's import services can help you seamlessly manage returns, and we can even help you ensure inward processing relief (IPR) is applied to your return, so you don't pay tax when the goods return to the UK.
