If I am not mistaken, the VAT is like a royalties tax they have over there. That is what matt told me at least.

Its like the GST (Goods and Services Tax) in Australia. I think it taxes you for products you buy. But if you live outside of Europe its no applicable to you and you can claim refunds at airports.

VAT is Value Added Tax and is worked out by working out 17 1/2% of the products value and then that is added onto the final price. Everyone pays it apart from schools. It is one way the government over here ahve so much money or such a small island
