Brexit Update and what you need to know when you purchase skincare products from Esse&co Beauty website.

Time to write about Brexit and the impact that will have on our industry, our e-commerce and our relationship with European Clients.

This article will explain how Esse&co Ltd will adjust to Brexit as well as what our customers need to do differently in order to comply with the new rules.

From the 1st January 2021, the United Kingdom has left the EU.
This will affect the way Esse&co Beauty caters to its European Clients.

Tax implication

Esse&co Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales No. 8245193. To help our customers based in EU, we obtained the UK EORI number which will allow us to ship goods to the EU without any hassle.

Our UK EORI number is  GB070109352000


What are the rules?

When you have selected the products you want to purchase and add them to the basket you will be taken to the checkout page. Here you will be reminded about the import duties and tax to pay.
So, please, before placing the order check how much it will cost your taxes and duties.

We will not be able to issue any refund once the order has been placed or arrived to your country. 

Customs clearance is mandatory, you will receive an email from the shipping company with the link which explain how to pay. Once the duites are cleared, the products will be delivered to you.


Calculation of customs duties

To be able to calculate the customs duties to be paid when trading goods, three factors have to be taken into consideration.

  • The value of the goods
  • The customs tariff to be applied
  • The origin of the goods
