With the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the EU TOA Corporation (UK) Ltd are constantly monitoring the situation and effect on the impact of the trade agreement with countries in the European Union. This will enable our Management Team to formulate our policies as the situation is clarified and ensure that we continue to offer the best possible product, delivery and customer service to our B2B clients.
We understand that the EU-UK Agreement goes beyond other EU free trade agreements and that zero tariffs and zero quotas will apply to goods. The current import duty for electronic goods is 0.00% on most products and therefore we do not envisage additional costs to be incurred across our product range relating to changes in tariff agreements. Our Management Team will continue to monitor the information issued relating to the EU-UK Trade Agreement and update our statement accordingly.
We are working closely with our shipping partner(s) to monitor any changes in cost and lead times and to address these as swiftly as possible should the need arise. We currently offer free delivery on orders to our UK distributors of over £100 and will quote for additional delivery charges on special projects prior to delivery.
