Vat

No sales tax on export stuff that leave the european trade union. I got the same problem when bying parts from Nederland. Think their so used to shipping within the EU, that they do this without thinking. It realy adds to the cost, when I import anything into Norway I got to pay 24% VAT in addition to whatever they added. :eek:
