Sky Blue Exports

About Us

SkyBlue Exports launched earlier this year by the team behind GB TaxFree, (originally founded in 2007 and successfully sold in 2017), have been quietly building a game changing business proposition that serves to compliment Tax free shipping.

When the government discontinued Tax Free shopping in January 2021 in the UK, direct shipping came into its own in the retail industry. Direct shipping or Tax-free shipping as its more commonly known, enables customers who reside outside the UK to pay no VAT at point of sale. Their purchased goods are shipped by the retailer directly to the customer’s address outside the UK.

Direct shipping means the customer is paying for their goods and then waving goodbye to them until they get home. This method isn’t always ideal for customers who purchase high value goods and often have an emotive connection and wish to be in control of their goods.

SkyBlue Exports was born to address this. A freight forwarder who can facilitate the export of goods purchased in the UK though private aviation on behalf of the customer. If the goods are leaving the UK on a private flight and travelling out of the European Economic Area (EEA), then SkyBlue can facilitate the export and enable the VAT that has been paid to be reimbursed. 

Our export service compliments Tax Free Shipping, uniquely providing customers who fly privately with a choice of ‘how’ to export their goods and at the same time giving retailers the opportunity to level up their export options for some of their very best customers.
