How is VAT/tax calculated? Why is there no VAT?

The checkout page of the SSD webside will automatically determine the VAT (also known as (Btw or MwSt) by using the shipping address entered. In Europe this is usually anywhere between 10-21% varying per country. If you have a VAT-number please don’t forget to add number in the checkout page as that will remove the VAT. (Changing this after the purchase is somewhat more difficult, so highly recommend doing this while ordering). Outside of the EU there will be no VAT added as non-EU puchases require no VAT. The application of tax is outside of the control of SSD.
