VAT Charges

VAT charges are applicable only in Europe.
Until 31 December 2014, the VAT charge was calculated as [product price * 1.15]. For example, If the product price is 50 then the VAT charge would have been (50*1.15). In this case, the VAT charge and total would be 57.50.
 
From 1 January 2015, supplies of telecommunications, broadcasting and electronically supplied services made by EU suppliers to private individuals and non-business customers will be taxable in the Member State of the customer. If your local VAT rate is 19%, for example, and the product price is 50, the total would be (50*1.19). In this case the total would be 59.50.
