International shipping

Duties and Customs

There is no import/export duties on goods shipped within the European Union. All goods shipped to EU countries already have the relevant VAT included.

Shipments sent outside the European Union are sold exclusive of VAT and may be subject to import duties and taxes, which may be levied once a shipment reaches your country. Please note: It is a legal requirement that we declare the full value of the goods (not including shipping charges) on all packages destined outside the European Union, and shipments may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. It is a criminal offence to falsify the details on this form. We cannot inaccurately describe the contents, claim a lower value or mark as a gift. Please do not ask, or expect us to do any of the above. For details of Customs charges please consult your own Customs authorities for the latest rates.

Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. We are unable to reimburse any costs incurred regardless of the circumstances. For current import duty and taxes for your country, please visit the Duty Calculator website .

When placing an international order with Kathmandu, the purchaser and/or the recipient are responsible for assuring the product can be lawfully imported into the destination country.

As legislation and policies vary widely from country to country, you should refer to your local governmental sources for confirmation. The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.

International Payments

International orders from kathmandu.co.uk operate in pound sterling (GBP). The exchange rate is determined by international credit card providers or banks, who may add an additional processing or administration charge. The international credit card holder is liable for this.
