What is VAT (Value Added Tax)?

All international orders are subject to a Value Added Tax (VAT) and/or Goods and Service Tax (GST). These taxes are imposed by foreign governments and are based on the value of the goods being imported. Taxes will be charged upfront for all FedEx shipments and FlashingBlinkyLights will handle customs responsibilities on your behalf. If you choose to use UPS Standard for your Canadian order, UPS will collect the tax directly from the recipient at the time of delivery. Unfortunately, we are unable to determine the amount UPS may charge. If you need a quote on an international order, please call us at (818) 753-8303.
