Hi, I know the law on charging vat between countries of EU changed some time ago, but is really this draconian? That a small business in Germany is refusing to sell to me in the UK because I am not VAT registered? I told him many companies in the UK would not be VAT registered...he said that German companies can choose to be VAT registered!!?!? I told him that for £300 worth of software I not registering for VAT...there is no point. Anyway, is the EU that stupid as to force one member company not to be able to trade because the other member country company is not VAT Registered?
