  • Import VAT - currently 20%

Arranging safety testing and conformity to EN71 European soft toy legislation and CE marking (I can arrange safety testing for other countries if required) - 

Safety testing certification is an additional cost, which needs to be repeated in 3 years, or as legislation changes.  The current cost of EU safety testing EN71 is approximately £400.

All the import related fees I can oversee for you. It would just be a matter of me informing you when and how to pay the duties when the goods arrive at the UK docks.

I will act as a consultant, design, arrange and oversee the whole process of your doll, including production, safety testing and clearing customs. Keeping you fully informed throughout.
