Brexit – International Delivery Information | MONPURE

The UK exited the European Union on 1st January 2021.

Due to this this, there will be some temporary changes to some dispatch and delivery processes for our international customers. Find details of all the changes below, and please contact our Customer Service team if you have any further questions.

Temporary Changes For International Customers

Customers ordering from an EU country

Order dispatch

Due to the Brexit transition, we are experiencing unforeseen carrier delays when processing international orders. 

You will receive an email confirming when your order has been dispatched. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and hope to be fully operational again soon.

Customs & duty

From 1st January 2021, orders from EU countries with an order value over €150 will be subject to import duty. Monpure London pays all import taxes and duties on your behalf but we are aware that recently some of our customers have been contacted by our carrier partners, DPD, DHL and UPS and asked to pay charges for the parcel to be delivered. That is an error relating to Brexit transition process changes and we are working with the relevant carriers to ensure they resolve it as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, if you are contacted by DPD, DHL or UPS and a duty payment is requested, then you will need to pay the charge to release the order for delivery. Please then contact us at with proof of your duty payment and we will ensure you are refunded. We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you for your continued support.

Returning your item

From 1st January 2021, returns from EU countries will be subject to UK VAT (20%) for goods valued at £22 or more and EU customers will now be required to complete customs declarations to import the goods into the UK. In addition, import duty may be payable on goods valued over £135. Monpure London pays all import taxes and duties on your behalf. Please contact the customer services team with proof of payment of duty and VAT and we will reimburse you. EU customers will continue to be responsible for paying carrier costs as per the existing return process.

Customers ordering from Northern Ireland

Order dispatch  

We anticipate that there may be some delays in orders being received in Northern Ireland as the new systems and processes are established. If your order is delayed for any reason, our carrier will contact you to confirm the delay and new estimated delivery time.

Customers ordering from the Rest of World (Non-EU)

Order dispatch  

We are currently experiencing a delay with international orders being processed. We are investigating as a matter of urgency and hope to have this issue resolved soon. In the meantime, you can still place an order with us, but it may take longer to arrive. You will be notified by your courier when your order is dispatched. We are very sorry for the inconvenience, and hope to be operating fully again soon.
