    I have emailed both Nordfoto and PhoBaTec and I will let you know of their responses. I don't think there is any way to escape the german tax rise any more though, I wish I knew that before.
    Thank you for the suggestions of british stores, the UK has definately some very fine merchants but I consider the island to be off shore the North American coast and not the European (and I am not talking about politics).

    If you are a professional photographer in the EU (and so have a VIES registered VAT number), you can avoid paying VAT for merchandise bought from other EU countries. You just send them your (VIES registered) VAT number and tell them that they should produce an invoice that'll be VAT-free. I know Ari can do that (but he has to register his VAT number to VIES first).

    On the other hand, I have been ordering tons of CD's and DVD's from play.com (they are based in Jersey, I think) and never did the Greek customs ask me for the VAT (Shhhhhh!!!)...

    Remember that Germany's VAT rate goes up from 16% to 19% from 1st Jan.
    Indeed, that's why we have great news on *NEWS*

    Best regards,

    Robert

    Jesus, indeed bad news. I am very sorry. I spoke to him a few weeks before the Photokina on the phone.
    Well you can see now what the risk is to be export manager. I did the same job for a long time and got also a severe car accident. Still not 100% recovery but this I concern as a real tragedy. Well, I was not informed by Fomei so far.

    The act like it though. The outrageous shipping charges and having to deal with currency exchange don't feel very E.U. too me...

    Yes I quite agree with you about some UK postage & packing charges, I've found it cheaper to buy from Fotoimpex in Berlin compared to a similar supplier in the UK for that reason.

    I should add I've had no problems with the UK suppliers who support & are listed on this site.
