    7% US here is better then 19% EU which is about 29% US in the conversion process.


    OK - well I was never noted for my brilliance in numeracy but how does 19% tax in any currency convert to 29% tax when converted to US Dollars ?? :anibad:

    Well I hope I have this right myself. I looked at it as 19% tax on 100 EU is 19 EU. So I am getting charged an extra 19 EU. 19 EU * 1.6 conversion comes out to 30.4 EU in taxes. So they charge me an extra 30.4% tax when I could pay my local 7% tax. Clear as mud, right? :(


    Argh - I see your reasoning now, I think :grin:


    If you calculate like that you would also have to convert the 100 EU as well, which makes 160 und you will end up with 19%. As the name already tells, you won't get absolute numbers but a fraction of the whole.
