DUTIES & TAXES
Taxes and duties are calculated according to your shipping destination. You can shop online in Euros or Pounds Sterling depending on your shipping destination. UK VAT will be applied to orders shipped to EU and UK, excluding Channel Islands. The online prices shown to shipping destinations outside the EU are excluding VAT.
International orders, from non-EU countries, will be sent DDU (Delivery Duties Unpaid), which means all relevant import taxes and duties are not included. Thus, any duties and taxes incurred in the country of destination are the responsibility of the customer.
Please be advised that tax and duties may not be refundable to NON-EU customers wishing to return items.
If a shipment is refused, we will do what we can to void the customs charges and have the shipment returned to Bernard Boutique. However, we cannot guarantee that customs charges can be voided for a refused shipment. In this case, we will inform via the email you provided and deduct the amount from your refund.
RESTRICTIONS AND STATUS UPDATES
Bernard Boutique is currently unable to deliver parcels to Russia.
Shipping to China is provided via DHL courier on a DDU (Delivery Duties Unpaid) basis. Due to customs restrictions, we require the receiver to provide a ten digit customs registration number (CR number) to Bernard Boutique which must be obtained from Chinese customs. We cannot ship orders to China via DHL courier without the required CR number. Please be advised that you will need to contact your local customs for the customs registration number (CR number). Your local customs will return your shipment to us if you cannot provide your personal customs registration number. In this event you still may incur duties and taxes from customs in China, which you as the customer would be solely responsible for. Your ID number is not the CR number that is required by your local customs. Please check the following links: Beijing, Shanghai,Guangzhou, Shenzhen
