Avoid Brexit price hikes with Alutech & JD UK

As the industry adapts to the changes imposed by Brexit from 1st January 2021, JD UK, the UK’s main distributor of Alutech roller garage door components, is reassuring customers that their prices will be unaffected by the changes. 

This is because JD UK imports from outside the EU, and therefore the costs are already covered.

Europe-based suppliers have previously paid zero customs duty when importing into the UK, however this has all changed with Brexit and their customers could see a price increase of around 5-8% depending on product.

Here’s some key points to be aware of:
  • Imports will need to be declared through an agent.
  • VAT will need to be paid prior to delivery, unless you apply for a government guarantee.
  • Duty will need to be paid prior to delivery, which will be around 6% on Aluminium products.
  • Agents will charge you a minimum fee per invoice/delivery.
Deliveries may be delayed through customs, either for checks or lack of capacity in ports due to an increase in demand.

JD UK’s Managing Director, Steve Hudson, said: 
“All of the above could potentially add a massive cost to your business. In these unprecedented times, we appreciate that all businesses are stretched thinly for time and resources. The last thing you need is more hassle and reduced margins.
“Luckily, here at JD UK, we import directly from our partner, Alutech Group, in Belarus and already have all of the processes and associated costs in place. This gives our customers peace of mind that buying from JD UK will be business as usual!”
