Closed petition Prevent the 2021 abolition of low consignment relief on items under £15

The proposed 2021 change to make all items imported to the UK taxable should be reviewed, as it may prevent people from ordering items outside of the UK.

This is a rushed attempt at increasing trade within the UK, destroying smaller strong trade relationships between the UK and other countries.

More details

The government has announced that in January 2021, they plan on abolishing the consignment relief on items posted from countries outside of the UK and valued under £15.

This means that all items entering the UK, no matter the value, will have a VAT charge and means the sellers, who are not located in the UK, will have to register for VAT to HMRC. Many will not want to go through this process and will stop selling to the UK, further damaging UK worldwide trade.
