Will I Have to Pay Duties or Tax on Receipt of Goods? How is VAT Applied?

Lumiere Shades can not be held responsible for any possible duties and taxes, which may be applied by customs in the country where delivery is made. The responsibility for any customs, duties, foreign taxes, other fees which may be imposed, will rest with the customer. Please contact your local customs office if you would like to seek more information regarding taxes and duties. We will not reduce the price on any packages.

When goods are imported into a country with a VAT regime (such as the UK & EU as of 2021), import VAT is charged at checkout as a percentage of the value of the imported goods. In addition to the VAT, customs duties will also be payable by customers.


We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Fall in love with your lantern or return it. You have 7 days from the date of delivery to send it back to us in exchange for a different size/colour of the same item, or a credit note for our online store. 

The lantern must be in the original, unused condition accompanied by the receipt for proof of purchase. Lumiere Shades reserves the right to deny an exchange or credit of the item if it is not returned in the specified condition.

We encourage you to return your parcel via registered or traceable postal services as all returned parcels remain the responsibility of the purchaser until received by Lumiere Shades.
