Why are we asking these questions?
As a site based in the UK, part of the EU, we are required to implement the new EU VAT directive
requiring us to charge VAT to all EU customers. Your answers to the questions above allow us to
ensure that if you are in the EU, we can pay the correct VAT to the tax authorities.
What happens if I am using an EU IP address but am not an EU resident?
If you get charged the EU rate but are not in fact an EU resident, contact us by
email and once we have verified that your billing address is outside the EU, we will
then refund the extra $10 to your PayPal account.
Does this affect people who are not in the EU, like Americans, Canadians, or Japanese?
If you are genuinely outside the EU, then set the top box to "No" and he second one to "Not
in the EU", and enter your PayPal address. As long as you are not accessing the site from an EU
registered IP address, You won't be charged VAT and will be able to join at
the original $50 price.
