VAT starting

Category

As of January 1, 2011, goods priced in excess of $ 10 and ordered from the U.S., China, or other countries outside the European Union will be subject to VAT. Let me remind you that so far the limit has been EUR 150. The VAT tax itself will also increase from 21% to 22%. The message is a couple of months old, but it seemed important to remind you about it.

As some things are only available when ordering from abroad, it turns out that I will have to pay the relevant market value + delivery costs + VAT for almost everything in the future. It all sounds like a robbery, so I’ll consider going back to using mail forwarding companies
