It’s passed the estimated ship date now, are you still waiting to ship these?

Literally nothing else from the USA has been held up since Brexit, only GBFans, so I’m unsure why these are still taking so long? Most people ship stuff, declare what it is on a customs form and we pay tax on arrival, that should not have changed since Brexit.
It's nothing to do with Brexit. The UK changed their VAT rules at the start of the year that overseas vendors now need to charge VAT at point of sale, and then pay that direct to HMRC, rather than as a customs charge for the buyer on arrival. Anyone not doing that is meant to be charging VAT, but obviously can't be bothered with the painful set up to do so. Like most UK government stuff, HMRC are shit and slow. It's a massive pain in the arse, but AJ is just following the rules here, but if HMRC insist on doing everything by post rather than email then it's going to be slow.

VAT NUMBER ACQUIRED.

Shipping will resume on Monday, with pretty much all UK orders shipping on Monday or Tuesday!

Yes. I was prevented from shipping these orders by your country. If I had shipped them, they would have been rejected and sent back, wasting time and money. I am thankful for all those that have been waiting patiently since January for their orders to ship.

"Most people" are breaking the laws of your country then. If your order is coming from the EU, chances are the VAT was already taken care of. If you order via eBay or Amazon, they are required to collect the VAT on behalf of the seller and they do not need to have their own VAT account. Orders over 135 GBP will still require payment of import fees on arrival. Orders under 135 GBP will have VAT collected at time of payment.

I can confirm this, I had a parcel cross the Atlantic in just over a week! :o
