This is where I am totally confused. I have spoken to other expats and they say that you have to pay an additional 4% on EU purchases, which in my mind is a penalty for purchasing outside of Spain. i.e Pay over at 22% and reclaim at 18%. I could learn to live with the 4% but if I have to pay 22% I would have to increase all of my prices.
