Per Gessle agrees with lower VAT for records

NORRKÖPING – In an action together, 1,200 European artists signed a petition to get the EU to lower the value added taxes (VAT) that apply to records, especially in countries like Sweden or Denmark, which have the highest taxes: 25%. In the other countries of the EU the tax is at the lowest about 15%, while, for example, books, newspapers or written music, can be as low as 5%.

  One of the Swedish artists who supports this action is Per Gessle, along with Eva Dahlgren, Uno Svenningsson, Robert Wells and Daniel Lemma. Other artists that can be found in this list are Elton John, Julio Iglesias, Andrea Bocelli and Eros Ramazotti.
