Looks like it becomes similar now to the situation we have in the US when ordering goods from the UK.
Some UK vendors are set up to send stuff VAT-free to the US ( e,g. Johnson Ross).

We are then dependent on the whim of US Customs on whether they charge US Import duty ( and theoretically there may also be a local sales tax cost). They seem to ignore small orders.....And we cant import bait personally ( a few big retail tackle companies have handled the import paperwork for bulk bait supplies , Mainline, Sticky, CC Moore etc).

Post-Brexit the EU will view the UK in roughly the same way I fear. Or more severely, as the EU Regs are often more rigorous than US FDA ones...

If there are no new agreements between the UK and the EU as of 1 January 2021, the rules will change. Ordering goods via UK web shops will be the same as ordering goods from outside the EU, such as the US or China. In that case, you will need to pay Dutch VAT (BTW) on products that cost 22 or more. You will also need to pay import duties if products cost more than 150.

( 20%) of the amount you bought

I'm resigned to the fact that I'll just have to find EU suppliers for the stuff I buy from the UK. A few hundred quid a year on bait and tackle won't make much difference to anyone.

Unfortunately I know several companies doing the same and finding alternative suppliers, but their orders are worth millions (not fishing related).

I'd agree. Shouldn't have to pay Vat both ends.

The problem is likely to be increased shipping costs, slower delivery, and the couriers being able to add on an extra 'handling fee' which could be anything.

Dont think webshops will mentioned the extra costs ( taxes)...
Its not there problem if a country charges extra taxes for import..
But if its the case, it will cost shops allot of income, always ordered allot in the uk, a bit more carefull now..

Living in The Netherlands I ordered 3-4 times a year tackle from Angling Direct.
Sometimes because it was cheaper, sometimes because some tackle from ESP and Gardner, etc is hard to get in NL.

Angling Direct has a also a Dutch website.
Is this a workaround so custommers do not have to pay extra taxes, etc?
On their website it says that orders lower than 90 euro come with 4,99 extra shipping costs.
Above 90 euro, it's for free.

Before Brexit, this was something like more than 19 euro's for free shipping.

Oh well, I will see.

I'm in the same boat as well as I used to buy most of my tackle and bait in the UK. As I understand it the shops in UK shouldn't charge VAT when selling to countries in the EU, but I'm not sure the are aware of that yet. In Denmark we are now supposed to pay danish VAT on orders over 10. Customs duties are to be paid for orders over around 140 if the good do not originate from the UK. This is where it becomes tricky because loads of tackle is produced in the far east and it will be virtually impossible to determine how much originate from the UK. The PVA mesh may come from ESPs UK Factory, the Free Spirit blank will be from the far east, the guides from the States but the rod is built by a UK rod builder. How much paperwork will it take to buy just a small order from a UK tackleshop? And regarding bait I guess that many ingredients are sourced from outside the UK, so buying bait in bulk may end as a costly affair too.
Tough times for a tackle hoarder.

The answer is buried in here ... what a mess. https://www.gov.uk/export-goods

Unless you are happy to pay unexpected charges Id be careful of importing or exporting anything until things become clearer.

Even worse for companies that want to export to the U.K. ... they are expected to register for U.K. VAT

Below a certain value seems to be a nightmare for foreign businesses , a couple of my suppliers are in the EU and they can't process orders below a certain value as they would have to register with hmrc for vat
