Brexit Plans from Digital Yacht for our EU Customers

Dear Customer

The situation regarding Brexit, EU future trading arrangements and customs procedures continues to be unclear. It is, however, the case that the UK will leave the EU Custom's Union on 1/1/2021 and we want this to have minimal impact on our future trading relationship. 

We appreciate that even if there are no duties or tariffs, trading with a business outside of the EU block could cause additional headaches with customs clearance, delays and payment of local VAT.

To mitigate any possible issues, we have put in place a new pan European distribution capability through our French subsidiary Digital Yacht SARL. Our plan will be to process and ship our EU orders through this office effective from 1st January 2021 and items will ship from here for pan European, free market deliveries.

Euro prices, discounts and general conditions will remain unchanged with fast deliveries utilising DHL and Fedex and current EU administration rules applying. 

Of course, you can still elect place orders through Digital Yacht UK so the choice is yours. Billing will be in EUR through both companies.  You can continue to reach your regular contacts through our existing UK email and telephone details so it will feel like a seamless change.

We would recommend you set up Digital Yacht SARL as a new supplier as soon as possible with details as follows:



VAT NUMBER: FR03848706735

Local Contact Phone Number +33 170 70 92 50 (UK Office + 44 1179 554474)

E-Mail OR

Bank Information : HSBC PARIS ELYSEE


IBAN FR76 3005 6009 3209 3200 3072 770

Moving forward, we will open a new, larger custom distribution facility in N France in 2021.  The company details will remain the same.

We have some exciting new product developments for 2021 and will be sending new 2021 Price Lists and information in early December

Regardless of the skills or capabilities of our politicians, we think we have an easy solution for frictionless trade going forward!

Thank you for your support and feel free to contact me with any of your concerns or questions.
