Important information for UK clients
As many of you probably know, Brexit has caused some changes in how the UK government collects VAT on imported products. Starting on January 1, 2021, that all shipments into the UK with a subtotal value of ￡135 or less have a 20% VAT collected by the shipper. These taxes are then to be reported and transferred to HRMC quarterly by the seller of the goods. Gamut has been looking into these rules and has concluded that this reporting's administrative costs would be too onerous for a small business like us to manage. Therefore, starting on December 31, 2021, we will set a rule in the Gamut Online Shop that will not allow the orders bound for the UK to have a subtotal value less than ￡135.
For smaller orders, we would encourage our friends in the UK to avail themselves of the opportunity to purchase Gamut strings forum our two partners in the London area:
Bridgewood & Neitzert
146 Stoke Newington Church St.
London, N16 0UH
J P Guivier
99 Mortimer Street
London, W1W 7SX
Phone: +44 (0)20 7580 2560
We will keep in close contact with these partners to make sure that you will be able to get the strings that you need. These days, purchasing locally is a responsible thing to do in any case, and Gamut encourages you to patronize these fine suppliers.
