As of January 01, 2021, the United Kingdom has indicated that any product shipped to the UK must have VAT fees and taxes PREPAID. This means we will have to collect these fees before we can ship your order. This might cause a small processing delay, especially in the first few weeks while we tweak the new system. Eventually, we hope to integrate the fees into the shipping cost during check-out, but currently, that is not an option. We’ll try to send out the payment requests as soon as possible after the order is placed, and assuming it is paid right away, it should ship the same as our typically lead time.
