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.


As much as we love our shades we understand you might not feel quite the same way. However our shades are made from sustainable materials which are all handmade and bespoke orders. Your shade is unique so please select carefully as we have had to implement the following policy in line with our environmental ethos. Please read below.

1. We do not accept a return based on colour discrepancy. Our linens are all hand dyed so there will be variations in batches of fabric colour. Also, the computer screen or mobile phone that you look at our products on may not truly represent the actual colours that they are in real life. Even though we try to photograph them to capture the closest possible match sometimes, there may be a slight variation which adds to the uniqueness of each piece.

2. We do not accept a return based on size discrepancy. Descriptions are available for each product with clear dimensions provided.

3. You, the customer is responsible for arranging and payment of all return shipments and any additional taxes or duties. We cannot be held responsible for return shipments that are lost in transit, so please make sure that you obtain tracking information for your return and insure your package appropriately.

4. Lumiere Shades is unable to refund any duties and or taxes paid.

5. The cost of the item only minus any taxes imposed to Lumiere Shades will be refunded if terms are agreed to.

6. No returns will be accepted unless agreed to by our team.

We are a small, family business creating beautiful handmade products in line with our belief that faster isn't always better. #slowliving
