How much are taxes?

Import tariffs and VAT (value added tax) on artwork vary by country but are typically 5% to 12% of the purchase price in the EU and UK.  Coming from the US, published prices do not include VAT. For example, recent UK customers report 5% VAT and zero tariffs on artwork. If you are unfamiliar with your import duties, please research or inquire prior to purchase.

Many countries do not charge any tariff duty on the importation of art photography. Photographs are accompanied by a customs declaration, which usually entitles you to duty-free and/or reduced VAT/tax under the harmonized tariff code, depending on your location.

International shipping times

International delivery times depend on location. Items are shipped via first class package service, priority mail, or priority mail express depending on the size and value of the package. Many locations in Western Europe receive packages in 3-5 business days, although a wide variety of variables can cause delays. Shipping to Australia is typically lengthy, and an upgrade to express service is recommended.
