COVID.19 Virus

Important Announcement regarding your orders.

(update 10/10/20) As the Covid.19 virus remains a threat, we are maintaining our post office runs at once weekly for the foreseeable future (Thursdays)

We are still more than happy to take your parts orders by e mail or telephone in the usual way, process it in the usual way, & have it ready to post on a weekly basis. But in the interests of safety for all concerned, orders will NOT be posted twice weekly as they usually would be until the crisis is completely over. OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS SHOULD ALSO NOTE THERE CAN STILL BE LONG DELAYS AT AIRPORTS & CUSTOMS CLEARANCE FACILITIES. (Although this situation is improving)

We apologise for the disruption to normal service, but lets all do our utmost to stay safe & defeat this thing.

Shipping addresses & phone numbers

IMPORTANT;- We are still having to chase people for shipping addresses before a quote for shipping can be provided. Likewise, many customers are not providing a contact telephone number to be added to the shipping label. If YOUR country uses GLS for deliveries, a contact telephone number IS ESSENTIAL

Please please please....ALWAYS include your shipping address with ALL pricing/shipping/ordering enquiries. By not giving your address you are wasting your time & ours. Without a shipping address we cannot work out the inland or airmail costs to complete the quote. Please help us to help you.

Due to increasing problems with GLS failing to deliver. All European country customers are required to supply a contact telephone number to be added to the delivery address label. Failure to do so may result in your package being returned to the UK as undeliverable. It may then be destroyed by Royal Mail rather than returned to KFS (as has recently happened)

Ex VAT Exports. (Brexit effect)

Zero rated exports which are currently available to customers in countries outside of the EU will cease on 31 December 2020. With effect from 1 January 2021 all exports, regardless of destination (EU & Non EU) will be treated as inland UK sales for VAT purposes & therefore all prices charged will include UK vat at the current rate + tracked airmail at cost.

In other words, the shown list price is the price EVERYONE pays.

Overseas non-EU customers (i.e Canada, USA, New Zealand, Australia) are therefore encouraged to make their purchases before 31 December. ORDER EARLY

Shipping price increases to the USA

There are significant air mail shipping price increases for the USA with immediate effect. For example a 2kg package Tracked & Signed has rocketed from £22.30 to £33.65 !! This, we are told by the Post Office, is a direct cause of President Trumps 're-structuring' of the USPS. The USA is now considered a world shipping zone in its own right (Zone 3) whereas before it shared Zone 1 with Canada & all of South America. (Well done Donald !! NOT)

4 Days Before BREXIT;- This may be mainly of interest to our overseas customers.

We, (like all UK vat registered business) have today (27th January 2020) finally received word from UK customs (HMRC) reference the immediate effect of Brexit on the implemention of new trading arrangements & customs export notifications for trade with the EU & the rest of the world.

In a nut shell, we are now told there is to be a 'no change' implementation period between 1st February 2020 & 31st December 2020. During this time HMRC will hopefully be able to explain in full how small businesses (like KFS) who export by post will be affected. Rather than those who export by shipping container loads, which is where their focus has been so far.

So at present we have around 11 months of 'business as usual' as far as exports to the EU & the rest of the world are concerned. What exactly happens after that is presently still unknown until they provide more information applicable to small businesses.

As I said previously some months ago, as a one man business & with retirement in sight in the next 1-4 years it was always the case that I would eventually wind the business down anyway. Over the next 11 months I will be looking at the best way forward with regard to vat, the scope of the KFS range & exports.
