    Yeah, that could happen. Maybe goverments finally figured out they can't rise the VAT rates forever. Which, of course is totally unfair, arbitary tax for consumers.

    What extra "value" exactly, is there when entrepreneur does transaction with client? Why does goverment need to get's it grummy hairy hands in between? There already is income tax *** :mad:
