VAT is an EU tax so if you’re in the EU you pay it at point of purchase if you buy goods from your own country or any other member state (UK is still in the EU for at least another 2 years, hopefully more as far as I am concerned, down with Brexit!). Different member states can set different rates within a certain margin. Big advantage is you NEVER pay any import tax, handling fee or import duty on anything you buy from other countries in the EU. Handling fees alone can be high, at least £8 here in the UK from Royal Mail, for example.
