Country specific VAT enabled in-store.
« on: July 19, 2012, 04:23:20 AM »
I think there wa a thread some time ago where we talked about how bad the country specific VAT is in the store. It's not very logical mind you, since VAT laws differ from country to country, in some places it doesn't even apply to digital goods. Vat is 27% in my country, so you see why I'm concerned. Is this intentional?

Hi Alphatt. I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly. The VAT is always calculated depending on the region. It's what the region requires and there's nothing we can really do about that. If the extra charge is too much, you can buy it off of GoG (which isn't a US company) or Steam (which eats the VAT charge) when it becomes available next week.
