Customs information

If, as of March 10th 2016, the value of your basket is under the duty threshold of $800 (postage included), you will not be required to pay import duty taxes. (Previously the import duty threshold stood at $200)

Any additional charges or fees for customs clearance should they arise must be paid by the customer. ElectricalWorld has no control over these charges and cannot estimate their cost. We are unable to reimburse or refund any costs incurred regardless of the circumstances.

If your order stands over the duty-free value, you will be issued with instruction along with the total amount due. Once paid for, your order will be sent for delivery.

Please note all information here is given as a guide to our customers. We try to keep imnformation up-to-date, however, please visit: for the most recent developments in duty charges.

It is a legal obligation that we declare full value of any order (not including shipping charges) & on all packages. Shipments may require import duties and taxes, which are levied once shipment reaches the country of destination. It is a criminal offence to falsify the details on this form. We cannot & will not inaccurately describe the basket contents, claim an untrue value, or mark as a gift. We ask that you do not ask us to do any of the above.

As a United States customer you will not be required to pay any UK or US sales tax, resulting in even better prices when you purchase with Electrical World!
