That doesn't seem correct. If Minispares are charging exports net of VAT than you have to pay Irish VAT @21% on your purchase. What they have shown may only be the Duty on imports, minimum €14.50 or 2.5%. You add duty to the purchase price and than add 21% vat. I think.

Have just placed a small parts order, ~ €70 worth so we'll see what extra charges are added by DHL...

I ordered parts worth about STG£100 a few weeks ago. I got a text from DPD UK saying that I owed €30 which included a €6.50 brokerage charge. This had to be paid (by paypal) before they would ship the parts to Ireland. With no Parcelmotel for the time being, we better get used to it.

Got email from DHL asking for payment to proceed with delivery.

€15.66 VAT + €5 "Payment Deferment Risk" so €20.66 in total.

Parts + Shipping came to £62.45, pre brexit this would have been £75.56 with vat @ 21%, then at £1=€1.14 rate, that is €86.17

Parts + Shipping £62.45, at £1=€1.14 rate, €71.22, plus €20.66 for VAT and DHL "fee", comes to €91.88

Total cost difference + €5.71

So not too bad for this small order, but I guess if I had to order all my panels this month, I would have been looking at much higher amount for the DHL fee.

Over €150 and duty could start to apply to the parts depending on where they are manufactured under the rules of origin. No vat charged in the UK so you have to pay it here on the goods now. A small order would be ok like Colin says but a big order could have hefty charges.

If you look at the Government ie website for import duty charges on goods over 150 euro, they can be a little eye watering.

Additionally, different items attract different VAT rates

Hi all, apologies if this is a stupid question but I’m a newbie when it comes to importing parts / accessories.

I believe that there is no import charge for car parts from the UK. Does anyone know if that includes alloy wheels? I have my eye on 4.5" x 10" Cooper S Replicas (link below) but I’m wary of additional charges on top of the VAT. I’d appreciate some guidance.

If the wheel and tyre are manufactured in the UK there should be no duty and the retailer needs to specify this on the import documents. If any of the items are imported into the UK and than exported there is Duty. You need to ask Minisport.
