Re: ASOS.com charging CH customers UK VAT with no deduction?

There are other online vendors using the same strategy. They pocket the difference.

Itīs legal.

If you don't like it, don't buy from them.

Oh - the other example I have is www.xing.de ; these guys charge the same price, without VAT, to non-EU customers, pocketing the difference. For Swiss customers it's a super-duper rip-off, as they charge the nominally same amount for everyone, but add 8% Swiss VAT on top! In protest I changed my address to a German friend's. The same amount I would've agreed to, but 8% on top without them reducing their charge accordingly (NB this would already give them 11% more already), I felt is too much.
I recently renewed my premium for employment reasons, I shall now take a closer look at this and react accordingly, much appreciated.
