Taxes & Duties
Is VAT included in the final price?
Prices displayed on our website include VAT (where applicable).
Are customs fees and duties covered in the cost of shipping?
Depending on your shipping location, customs fees and duties are included in the product price displayed on our website. Taxes may be charged separately. All orders are dispatched from Ireland.
For all online orders – including the purchase of gift cards – any and all fees required for customs clearance are the sole responsibility of the customer. If your order is subject to your country’s local import taxes, and in locations where duties are not included in the product price, you can choose to pay customs and duties at checkout to guarantee no hold-up at customs and no duties and taxes owed when your order is delivered to you. Louise Kennedy has no control over these charges. For more information on customs, duties, taxes and other import charges, please contact your local customs office.
