night & day the dim gates lie open –
but to retrace your steps to the upper air
that’s the effort, that the work

From 1st July 2021, European Union VAT rules on cross-border business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce activities will change. The EU will be removing the current €22 value minimum VAT threshold meaning that all goods entering the EU will be subject to customs clearance and VAT charges. To avoid these charges EU customers are advised to purchase their titles from Amazon or their local book shop.
