International Duties & UK VAT

If you are an international customer, your package may be subject to duties when it arrives in your country. Unfortunately, we have no way of predicting these charges, as they differ significantly from country to country and are a matter between you and your government that you are responsible for. Since you are a citizen of your country, and are importing the goods yourself. Further information on this matter may be attained from your local customs office.

You should also be aware that some local customs offices may charge a "handling fee" in addition to the duties. Any postage price you pay to Mr Bongo covers the full cost of shipping the goods to you.

We cannot list the shipment as a "gift" on the customs form (even if you are giving the goods to someone as a 'gift') as we are a commercial operation and you have paid us for the products. Sorry, we don't have a choice.

All prices include UK VAT at the current rate. A VAT receipt is available upon request from - please include your order number.
