Customs and import duties

Alcohol products sold at The Drinks Basket Ltd are subject to UK taxation. Though at present we only deliver within the UK, if, at a later stage, we ship products to an address within the European Union (EU), prices are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT). This applies to all countries that make up the EU except for Germany and Sweden where UK alcohol tax and VAT are deducted and local alcohol taxes and VAT are added at the time of sale. If we are shipping to an address outside the EU, we will not charge VAT. However your order will be subject to local taxes and duties upon arrival in the recipient country, which are levied once the package reaches customs clearance. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you will need to contact the recipient local customs office for further information. Refusal to pay the local import duties and taxes will result in the goods being either destroyed at customs or returned to sender at the cost of the consignee (costs will be deducted from any refund owed).

Entire agreement

These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all previous statements and understandings whatsoever between us. If any provision under these terms and conditions is found in law to be unenforceable all other provisions of these terms and conditions shall remain in full force and effect.
