UK & EU Buyers: NEW VAT Laws. How to Purchase Fablebands

Please read carefully below depending on the region where you reside.

UK Costumers

Effective December 18th, 2020 we are not able to ship to the UK for orders placed at our main website: fablebands.com. This is due to the new UK VAT laws effective January 1, 2021. 

Alternatively, you can place your orders from our Etsy managed shop, where VAT will be automatically collected on orders below 135 GBP to simplify your buying and shipping experience and your orders will likely be processed faster by the customs authorities

EU Costumers

As of July 1st, 2021, buyers will be required to pay VAT on all purchases up to €150. As a non EU seller, I have the option to register with any of the EU state members in order to collect VAT on all EU orders on fablebands.com (this website). However, as a single member small business and NON-EU merchant, I would also potentially need to appoint a VAT intermediary in order to remit collected taxes to the EU. In full transparency, this is prohibitively expensive for me.

I'll continue offering shipping to EU buyers, but BE AWARE that VAT will not be collected when you make purchases on this website; EU customers will be charged upon delivery of the goods by the carrier. In addition to that, shipments could be stopped at the border for valuation checks that may result in delivery delays and/or additional VAT assessments.

If you place an order via this website, I will not be responsible for VAT payments or long delays due to extended processing of your order at your country customs office. 

Alternatively, you can place your orders from our Etsy managed shop, where VAT will be automatically collected on orders below €150 to simplify your buying and shipping experience and your orders will likely be processed faster by the customs authorities

Here are the two options to order from our Etsy managed shop depending on the availability of the items you'd like to buy:

Purchases Including Pre-Order Only Items

During Pre-Order sale periods (when we release new Fablebands designs), please visit our Etsy managed store to see all new items available for purchase. Processing times for these items are listed under the Shipping and  Policies tab in the product page. For additional information about Fablebands processing times click here.


Purchases Including Ready to Ship Items

If you'd like to purchase Fablebands that are currently in-stock and ready to ship (click here to see all Ready to Ship Fablebands), please send us a message via Etsy messages so I can create a custom listing for you. Please include the designs/styles you'd like in your message. 

For restock days, when the most popular Fablebands design sell out very fast, I'll try to save some of the inventory to make it available in our Etsy managed shop.
