Posted 19th Mar 2022
My windscribe VPN expires soon, so I’m looking for an alternative and thought I’d try Surfshark (currently saying £45 for two years).

However, when I click through to order, it’s adding 20% UK tax, taking the total to £54. I’ve tried various UK locations, but still the same.

I just tried changing the drop down bar to the US, and it removes the tax element (as the pic) but I assume I can’t purchase from there using a UK credit card? Any way round the tax element?

    Hopefully, you are not one of those who rant about Amazon and Starbucks not paying their "fair" share of tax.

    Been posted before: there's a freephone hotline to specifically assist with this type of question: 0800 788 887

    Posted using FastestVPN which probably isn't, but one-off VATless £12.60 equivalent provides lifetime sub of 15 simultaneous connections where any one or all of those 15 simultaneous logins can be routers feeding multiple downstream devices. Torrent-friendly, adblock, etc will be fine for most non-anti-society uses unless your name is J.

    You can call the freephone number after purchase to sort the VAT.
