Welcome to Weiser Antiquarian Books!


The EU has recently introduced new import regulations that require us to register with *every country in the EU* (or related countries) to whom we sell for tax purposes and to get a tax (EORI) number for those countries.  We are a small business and this is utterly ridiculous: we simply cannot afford the additional cost burden this would impose so unfortunately we can no longer sell books to buyers in the EU.

We are sorry, as we have many good customers in Europe, but the EU has simply made it impossible for small businesses like us to keep dealing with them.  I'm sure this was their aim as no-person in their right mind could expect us to deal individually with customs potentially from any of the 27 member states. Sincerely

Keith and Marilyn

For those who are wondering this is apparently what will happen if we send a book without first engaging with the customs department in your country.  "If you do not have the right EORI number, you may have delays at customs and increased costs, for example your goods may not clear at all. Instead, they’ll be held until you can provide the necessary paperwork to release them and the cost of any associated storage will be billed back to you.  They may be returned to you and there may be substantial delays and additional charges."  We simply can't run this risk.
