VAT on electronic orders

Have been considering purchasing updates for my F Secure Internet Security software and also Ad Aware full version. In each case, charges include VAT at 25% ! I thought UK rate was 17.5%. Anyone know why UK residents have to pay more ?

But the trouble is that the VAT rate is not the same for different EU counties, some charge 15%, some chage 25%. (Gordon Brown does not like the universal VAT across EU).

To sell into Europe, a Web seller must chage a VAT (any rate will do), some seller chose top rate, some chose low rate. In your case, just unlucky.
