Information for valued EU customers.

On 1st July 2021 the EU abolished VAT exemption for goods in small consignment of a value of up to EUR 22. More information here:

I set up the RSDsound website to supply hard to find repair parts that I’d sourced for my work at Keld Ampworks Guitar amp repair to other repairers and hobbyists across the world. I’m a one person show, and the repairs are a priority, in order to put food on the table. Because there’s just me, I can’t logistically manage to calculate and pay VAT to the EU via the IOSS alongside the other work I have. In addition, the requirement to appoint an EU based intermediary (accountant) for the process makes this financially impossible.

For this reason, if you buy a product from, then you will be expected to pay import VAT to the courier or postal service that imports the item that you buy. They will often charge an admin fee for this and it may cause delays.

Thank you for your understanding.
