International parcels are sent through Australia Post Air Mail.  Delivery is typcially 3-10 business days to most locations. Customers can purchase a registered mail upgrade if they wish to have their orders sent by Registered Air Mail. 

For larger orders (above 2kg or typically >10 items) then International Express Post or International Express Courier will be used, depending on the destination country.

International Customers should also be aware that local import taxes may be payable on receipt of your purchase.

UK Customers

UK customers please note, goods purchased with a value exceeding £18 may attract an import duty as well as VAT, payable by the importer (in this case you) on receipt of the item.  For gifts the allowance is doubled (to £36) and a flat rate customs duty of 3.5% is used if the gift's value is under £290.  More information is available at the HM Revenue and Customs Website

Customs Duty is only payable if the amount of customs duty due is more than £7.  This means customs duty would only be payable (at a rate of 12% for swimwear) if the total value of the item(s) purchased was £58 (or about AUD $85).  VAT, charged at 17.5%, is due on all commercial goods over £18 and gifts over £36.

As we send via Australia Post, Royal Mail will deliver your goods and it is apparently a bit hit and miss as to whether items over £18 will attract the attention of Revenue and Customs.  Royal Mail may also charge their own handling fee for collecting and taxes imposed. 

This is a good thread of others' personal accounts and experiences with importing for personal use: UK VAT

We offer a free gift wrapping service.  Just make a note in the order comment field if you would like your purchase gift wrapped.
