Question for those able to answer
I have a web hosting plan with a provider that are based in Germany. I don't remember how I ended up with these in particular but that isn't the point. I use them for very basic things like a website (that I never update), email and file hosting for myself and a few friends. Every time I've paid for this it is done so with a 12 month payment up front and I paid this in September or October.
They recently sent me an email detailing the change mentioned in this article about VAT now being charged according to the customer's country meaning it'd be 20% instead of 19%. As I've paid a year in advance are they entitled to try and claim more money from me? I'm assuming not as this change has been coming for a while and they made no mention of it when I renewed the plan and the first I heard of it was the email about the change. I don't know for certain that they intend to try and ask for more money but it wouldn't surprise me.
