Brexit Update Aircraft Model Store

We are still proudly shipping to all 27 countries in the European Union with DHL, DPD and Royal Mail International Services.


1. Will I have to pay UK VAT when shopping with Aircraft Model Store? 

Customers located in the European Union can benefit from tax-free shopping, allowing you to pay the Ex. VAT prices displayed across our website. You will not be charged any taxes by AMS, as long as your order is shipped to an address outside of the UK.

2. Will I have to pay local taxes?

If the order is sent to an address in the EU, it now counts as an export from the UK and as an import into the EU. We cannot advise if you are liable to pay any charges within your country, usually your local VAT rate will be applied and you will be contacted prior to delivery. 

If you refuse to pay import duties and the parcel needs to be sent back to us, you will not be refunded any shipping cost that you have paid to us.

3. Are there any shipping delays?

We have been shipping successfully within the EU since the exit from the European Union on 1st of January 2021 with minimal delays.

If you still have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us a and we will be happy to help you.
