Customs & Import Fees

Updated 6 months ago

What is Customs Duty?

When goods are imported into a different country or customs territory, there can be a charge applied called 'Customs Duty' that is charged by the local customs authority where the goods are being imported into.

If Customs Duty is required by your territory, you'll be responsible for paying it to the authorities. Whether Customs Duty is payable, and by how much, depends on your countries specific regulations.

If you do have to pay Customs Duty though, the amount payable is usually calculated based on the value of the goods and the type of goods being imported.

Do I need to pay Customs Duty fees at Gymshark?

You don't need to pay customs fees when shopping on our USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, France, Germany, Netherland & EU store.

For all other stores, you may face customs charges issued by your local customs authority. Please see below for further information.

What if I don't pay the Customs Duty?

If you decide to refuse the customs fee, we must confirm with the courier that your parcel will be returned back to Gymshark before processing a refund for your order and in some instances a shipping and handling fee may be deducted from your refund.

If you're still unsure on whether you'll be subject to customs fees, we recommend contacting your local customs office for more information before placing your order with us.

What is a Sales Tax?

Sales Tax, also known as VAT or GST, is a tax charged on the supply of goods or services. Gymshark is generally registered for Sales Tax in all of the countries it ships to, so we'll charge you the Sales Tax as part of the checkout process. We collect Sales Tax from you on behalf of the local tax authorities and we then pay this directly to the local tax authority.
