Buy VAT/TAX-free within EU
Most countries add the standard VAT/TAX rate when you buy silver bars and coins. Here are the EU-rates Vat Live. But, depending on where you live and whether you want to take home delivery, or get a vault storage, there are a couple of ways to buy silver without having to pay VAT/TAX.
EU-clients wanting to take delivery of their goods:
Estonia is the only country in EU where you can avoid VAT/TAX on silver coins, which are legal tender. All Silver coins that are minted with a face value are legal tender and therefore sold VAT/TAX-free in Estonia.
Article 34 of the EC-guideline 2006/112/EC limits international sales of goods subject to VAT/TAX. The guideline says that the location where the contract is fulfilled is applicable to VAT/TAX. This guideline is only applicable if the seller ships directly to you. So, you can simply have the goods delivered by a third party courier, which is cooperating with the seller all through the order/shipping process.
Estonia is one of the most financial stable countries in EU and NATO, where it has been a member since 2004. A corner-stone of Estonian stability is the balanced budget policy, pursued persistently over the years by various governments. This has given Estonia a national debt which is among the lowest in Europe, and enables appropriate fiscal reactions even in turbulent economic times.
