VAT and other taxes vary considerably across the EU. This frequently impacts where e-commerce and other digital media business locate themselves. Personally I believe that businesses should be making their decision not based on tax but on other fundamental business practicalities. It would be great if the EU could address this matter over time which would ensure that business leaders take the tax variable out of their decision equation.
