As expected business has been slow during January with continued lockdown in the UK and many countries worldwide.
One complete balloon leaves the List this month, whilst a complete Tekno 50 in France and a complete LBL 105A join these pages, the former from ‘Stop Press’. Also new this issue is a Cameron/Honda 5.5hp fan, a Cameron Shadow/Stealth Double burner (ex ‘Stop Press’) a refurbed 5hp fan prop and a price reduction for Glen Everett’s UM H-31 envelope G-OINN.
Zebedee now have no quick releases for sale, having sold the last of our new stock and both used examples advertised by us last month.
The post Brexit dispatch of parcels to EU countries has not gone well so far. One to Germany is still ‘in transit’ after two weeks, whilst DPD (who the other two went with) are temporarily suspending UK-EU shipments and we understand these are in the process of being transferred to Parcelforce. We hear too that a new Ultramagic balloon is bogged down with paperwork and delayed coming the other way…
Also as a result of Brexit we no longer have to charge UK VAT on new items exported to the EU by post/courier but please be aware that local VAT is likely to be charged on delivery. This mainly applies to Zebedee Box items.
Whilst there is no UK VAT chargeable on used items, we are unsure what happens when they get to the EU, so are awaiting responses from our first exports to arrive to find out! What a mess ….!
