Stefanie, who runs Fountainfeder, is indeed nice, and the shipping charges are reasonable. However, I must say I prefer to buy from UK-based suppliers, because I then get the 20% VAT component knocked off their list prices. Stefanie told me that by Germany's laws, a 19% VAT is applicable even for direct exports to Australia ordered online.
As always: 1.
Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN
is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2.
I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong.
My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3.
I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write
, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself
and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
