IMPORTING FROM THE UK
...It's Easier Than You May Think
Pobjoy Diamonds has been allocated an Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) number for the purposes of facilitating the export of our diamonds and fine jewellery.
This EORI number is in turn provided by us to the relevant cross-boarder courier company when shipping orders overseas. We can provide this number to you if required upon request.
EU & CONTINTENTAL EXPORT DUTIES & TAXES
All our published prices include UK VAT at 20%.
If you are ordering from outisde the UK we will calculate the VAT element and refund this to you after checkout. You can calculate this amount before placing your order by using the CALCULATE VAT tool below. You will then just need to pay the relevant tax and any duties applicable to your order upon delivery by the courier company.
Alternatively contact us before checking out and we will remove the VAT element before you process your payment.
The exact amount of tax and customs duty you will need to pay varies slightly between countries but within the EU is typically 21% of the purchase price after UK VAT has been removed.
You can calculate the exact amount payable upon receipt by using the SIMPLY DUTY CALCULATOR tool below.
All Pobjoy Diamonds' diamond and fine jewellery is produced in and shipped from the UK mainland and any taxes and duties are calculated accordingly.
US CUSTOMERS 20% VAT REFUND INFORMATION
For customers paying in US $ with a billing and delivery address within the USA all our published US $ prices are FREE of UK VAT.

CALCULATING TAX & DUTY PAYABLE
First, simply calculate the net cost of your item (by deducting the 20% VAT included in all Pobjoy Diamonds published prices on this site) by using the VAT calculator.
Then use the Simply Duty calculator to estimate the relevant duty and tax charges that will be payable by you upon receipt of your order.
Select the destination country, relevant local currency (GBP, EUR or USD) and type of item and then input. The calculator will instantly display any duties and taxes you will be required to pay the relevant authorities.
For example, a diamond with a published price of EUR 6,000 includes VAT at a rate of 20% or EUR 1,000.
Using the VAT calculator will provide the net price of EUR 5,000.
Then enter the net price in the Simply Duty calculator to find the relevant tax and duty charges payable upon receipt of your order.
Using this same example, the tax and duty amount payable upon receipt is 21% of the net price (EUR 5,000 X 21% = EUR 1,050).
