UK VAT change

@StevenJPemberton I heard that the VAT for ebooks in the UK has been changed to 0%. Is that true?

If it is, I’m overcharging UK customers 20% for my ebooks.

Yep. See here, for instance: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/apr/30/amazon-to-cut-price-of-its-ebooks-to-reflect-removal-of-vat

It was due to happen on 1st December, but the UK government brought it forward, presumably for the benefit of book lovers who are stuck at home with nothing to do. Amazon said that for books where they set the price, they’ll reduce the price in line with the change. Presumably that means self-published authors will have to change their own prices if they want to charge readers less.

Thanks.
