Purchased RapidWeaver 8 upgrade today via Paddle - the problem is that Paddle are not treating VAT (20%) correctly. Their office (and VAT registration) is in EIRE, not UK, so VAT should not be charged to UK or other European businesses, as it is not reclaimable.
EU VAT rules state that the purchaser should provide their EU VAT registration number (GB… in my case) and the product should be sold NET of VAT.
In UK, only UK VAT can be reclaimed (unless the VAT figure owed is over £20k to justify the hoops that need to be jumped through).
I have notified Paddle of the issue.
