The European Parliament has voted in favor of VAT being scrapped on e-books, bringing them into line with paper tomes. MEPs came together across party lines to demand that extra charges are scrapped for the digital publications. In the UK, newspapers and printed books are VAT-free, but EU rules mean that readers of e-book are obliged to pay and extra 20 per cent in VAT for their choice of picking up an electronic treatise. The verdict from MEPs is non-binding but must be considered by the European Commission as it tweaks regulations on VAT for digital services.
