VAT/GST/Sales Tax Rate: Global Survey on Books & E-Books: Europe, Latin America and Canada
Source: International Publishers Association
From the Introduction:
For the fourth consecutive year, the International Publishers Association (IPA), along with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Belgium and the Global PricewaterhouseCoopers Indirect Taxes Network, carried out a global survey on the application of VAT/GST on printed books and e-books.
While the first three IPA/PwC VAT/GST surveys aimed solely at learning more about the availability and use of special tax rates for printed and e-books in general around the world, and attempted to assess the extent to which the tax treatment of e-books was aligned with a given special tax treatment for printed publications, this fourth edition sought to sharpen the focus by concentrating exclusively on Europe, Canada and Latin America.
