I've just bought me an extra 3 months of DSJ online and it's not really expensive, so I didn't hesitate to pay the Finnish VAT of 23% ... or at least I thought it was the Finnish VAT. I took a closer look and noticed that it says that 23% is the VAT for Germany. This is strange because it's actually 19%. I then checked my bill from last year and it said 22%. The German VAT hasn't changed during all this time, it's always been 19%, so I'm just curious: What are these 23% really? I believe I once heard something about an EU fee for online purchases.
