back   German VAT:

Himstedt Kinder from the secondary market are, as collectors' items subject to a so-called "differential taxation". This means that the 19% VAT is only included in the profit margin (in other words in the difference between the purchasing and selling price) and for this reason may only, when in a case of export to non-EU countries be excluded. This is a very small portion of the overall sum, and often does not even cover the PayPal fees. We therefore, do request that our collectors in non-European countries are aware of this fact and that the price of export for Himstedt dolls when sold to such countries does today (and contrary to previously, when the dolls were still freshly manufactured) correspond to the price within the EU itself
