From January 2021, the UK officially exited the EU (Brexit), which changed a lot of the terms of shipping and commerce with EU member states, like the Czech Republic. Changes are not uniform across the whole of the UK, so here we will outline the details and conditions for each constituent country. These terms are set as a result of the UK's negotiations with the EU, and not by the companies or enterprises conducting trade across these borders.

General Info

Prusa Research has applied for a UK VAT number and will collect the 20% UK VAT for orders up to 135 GBP (VAT excl.) which will be paid by us to the UK Government (HMRC). We have a VAT number pending and it will be included in the tax invoices once processed. It can then be downloaded from your profile pages of our e-shop or provided by our customer support.

There will be two separate shipping destinations (countries) in our e-shop. You must always choose the correct location according to the shipping address as different tax rules apply.

  • United Kingdom
  • United Kingdom - Northern Ireland

United Kingdom

Due to the EU - UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), no customs duties will be applied to orders shipped to the United Kingdom (UK) from the Czech Republic. However, the carrier may charge processing-fee.
