    Why the Anti-EU Thing is So Retarded

    Believe it or not, we still dont have anAmazon.eu or Ebay.eu

    Here's the explanation:

    The common market doesn't really regulate taxes. A business that reaches the threshold for VAT payments in other EU members has to register with the tax authorities and has to pay value-added taxes in that country.

    For example the threshold in Germany is 12,500€, in France it's 10,000€ in Ireland it's 41,000€. So if I, as a German business, sell goods worth more than 10,000€ to French customers per year I have to get a French tax account and I have to pay French value-added tax on that.

    Regardless of the amount of sales, I always have to declare the French VAT properly on my invoices for French customers. Which means I have to know the tax rate of the goods I'm selling. Did you know that the UK taxes adult coloring books differently than coloring books that aren't advertised as being for adults? Have fun figuring out the tax rates for 28 member states.

    When I sell to other EU customers I also have to fill out a ton of additional paperwork for the German tax authority.

    None of that is a problem for Amazon. But it's a massive problem for small and medium businesses. For a large amount of SME the occasional sale is just not worth the effort.

    This argument is retarded. "Small and medium businesses" doesn't sell for tens of thousands of euros to several different EU states. And if an "occasional sale" provided they did, they would have little problem hiring an accountant to research the specific tax rates for their specific trade goods, if they are intellectually incapable of doing so themselves.
