    Why is upgrade so much more expensive in the UK?

    The upgrade/licensing annual fee is 299 US$, which converts to UK pounds as about 187 yet you are charging UK customers 268 pounds. I assume that includes an amount of VAT (sales tax), in the UK the rate is 20% but that still means your charging us 223 pounds, still a massive premium on the US price.

    How come?

     

    I want to buy at the US price

    Today it is better. Upgrade to 8.2 perpetual is $299 (plus sales tax) or £228 on the UK shop which includes VAT (sales tax).

    At today's exchange rate of 0.64  $299 = £191 plus VAT at 20% = £229

    So by my reckoning the UK price is cheaper than the US - Hooray!
