Belgium is going to lower the VAT on e-Books to 6%

The Parliamentary Committee for Finance on Wednesday unanimously approved a proposal to lower the VAT on e-books in Belgium to 6%. This should result in lower prices, because the old VAT on digital books was a whopping 21%.

Belgium will be the first European country to charge the same VAT for print and digital. This should be a boon for local publishers and indie authors who rely on Amazon and Kobo to drive digital sales.
