    Hey guys, I was wondering if there is any way not to pay the VAT for GSA SER?

    I thought of buying it with some proxy so I wouldn't pay VAT but wouldn't they see that the paypal acc is for another country than the proxy?

    So is there anyway not to pay it?

    if you live in the UK then why do you have a problem paying VAT? Do you not use the public resources that it pays for?

    If you don't live in the UK then why would you be paying VAT? Isn't it just a UK tax?

    vat is value added tax. it's not country specific, but in English and EU talk, most people talk about this tax with the UK acronym, ie Vat.
    It's basically a tax added to the base price of a product. Product price * 1.VATRATE = VAT INCLUSIVE PRICE
    eg, 100*1.2=120

    EU law is that businesses have to charge VAT on electronic products where the consumer resides. They introduced this law a few months ago to prevent companies such as amazon to abuse vat rates. Amazon based its EU ops in Luxembourg, where they could get away by chargin a very low rate of vat(think twas 3%?).
    I don't know about Merican taxation.
    edit: each country calls its vat differently
