Hi Canada_Rockies

Retail prices published in the U.K. are required by law to INCLUDE VAT (Value Added Tax) @ 17.5%, so all of the prices mentioned previously in this thread are INCLUSIVE of VAT !

Best regards
Yes, I think it's the same here in Belgium (for most stuff) and I find it pretty logical that they do.

I mean, you see an Ad for a K100D and you think, WOW that's cheap, only 300 euros, but when you are in the store they want you to pay 370 euro (for example).

Basically I see NO valid reason NOT to post the price without all the applied Taxes.

Only for some it would mather since sales tax like VAT is not applied to them.

Oh, and VAT here is 21% for most stuff.
