When placing an international orders, there are mainly 2 outcomes when it comes to Taxes:

  • In some international destinations, Jackson’s is registered for tax purposes and we are able to collect Taxes (VAT/GST/Sales) at the point of ordering, when you're checking out your order online.
    This way, orders that are under local import value thresholds will have no additional charges due when the goods arrive at their destination and Customs won't need to contact you.

  • In other countries, Jackson's isn't required to be registered and therefore we won't include any Taxes when your checking out. The costs you see in our Basket totals are tax-exempt.
    In this case, you are likely to be asked to pay a fee by Customs to offset this.

The difference can easily be checked in your Basket or Checkout totals in the Tax line, before you complete an order.
