PAYABLE DUTIES & TAXES FOR ITEMS SHIPPED TO THE UK
The United Kingdom does not have a duty free allowance for imports. Taxes are payable upon delivery of the package to the UK, not when they are sent from your virtual mailing address or your virtual mailing addresses. As a result, the value of all goods is taxable and is required for the overall international shipment.
We guarantee the safety of your forward packages to ShipByMail. If your purchased goods arrive to ShipByMail virtual mail addresses in Canada in substandard condition, we will notify you and pause the shipment: this way, you won’t pay duties on products that have to be returned/exchanged with the original provider.

Express Shipping from the ShipByMail warehouse to the UK will take 4-8 business days.
