Alutech Systems has reassured customers that its prices will be unaffected by Brexit as it imports from outside the EU – the aluminium systems supplier has confirmed that there will be no price increase implemented in January.
According to Alutech, customers of European system suppliers could now see a price increase of around 5-8% depending on product.
The company adds that 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 profiles; agents will charge you a minimum fee per invoice/delivery; and deliveries may be delayed through customs, either for checks or lack of capacity in ports due to an increase in demand.
Alutech Systems’ 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 Alutech Systems, we import directly from our partner in Belarus and already have all of the processes and associated costs in place. This gives our customers peace of mind that buying from Alutech Systems will be business as usual!”
