« Back Taxfree Shopping Dated February – 2009. 16
Most countries use a Value Added Tax (VAT). This is not a specific customs tax, but a general tax added to all goods and services.
In Norway the VAT is set to 25%. Exported goods are exempted from the tax, subsequently we have subtracted the VAT from retail prices,
displayed in other currencies than NOK (Norwegian Kroner).
Here is an example of how it works:
|Norwegian price||ex||VAT||NOK||800||(Value Added Tax on 25% = NOK 200)|
|Taxfree price||NOK||800*||(Displayed in foreign currency)|
*International customers outside the EC (European Community), please note that in some cases you might be subjected to customs or import taxes when ordering from Freudian Kicks, please check with your local customs office for your local rules and regulations.
