German E-book VAT at 7%

Germany introduced legislation that reduces the VAT rate on e-books, online journals and newspapers from 19% to 7%.

This is followed by the agreement between the EU’s council to allow reduced / 0 % rated physical books with their electronic equivalents. 

A number of EU countries have already implemented this. 

Germany is to approve the change to take place in the next few months but won’t be active till 1st January 2020.
