The British government recently announced a 2.5% reduction in VAT (sales tax) on goods purchased from the United Kingdom (see where we are based). UK VAT was previously 17.5%, but from the 1st December 2008 until the end of 2009 it has been reduced to 15%.
Like many businesses, last Monday, we implemented the change.
Customers in the United Kingdom who aren’t VAT exempt, and those of you in Europe who are not VAT registered and must pay VAT, will now pay only 15% VAT.
For customers outside Europe, including those of you in the USA, Canada, and Australia, UK VAT still does not apply and you can continue to purchase licences without paying UK sales tax.
