KAROO 2 seems to be more expensive than 399 dollars

Post by Dobbel »

A friend of mine wo pre-ordered KAROO-2 received per email the announcement for next steps in ordering to take.
It was different than expected, because instead of 399 dollars to be recalculated to Euro´s, he need to pay more because of additional Tax.
This is around 73 euro´s so it seems.

He is living in the Netherlands and the Tax is very strange, because with previous Karoo-1 and mounts etc. these products are shipped from a warehouse in...... the Netherlands. And therefore no additional Tax was needed to be paid.
As, I think, for all EU-countries is the case (so not for England currently).

Anyone else this experience?
Is this additional Tax of 73 euro´s for you a surpise or not?

The FaceBook folks are going crazy
After what they got as bills.
Not exactly what they had expected
And filled with unsure calcule ills.

It mostly could be EU taxing,
given what those guys produce.
Still it adds to the conundrum
over what they're tryin to do.

... I think it´s the same procedure as for the normal shipping for the Karoo 1.
... we also had to pay for tax and these extra fee (they commute this but not the real amount).
... if you take the pocket calculator you´ll see that´s 21% add-on (it seem to be for all countries)
... I think the only exception was the inventory-clearance sale "Black-Friday" last year.
