@Gordon Thanks for clarification. Only to make it clear for me:
If I donate 5$ via patreon to you, I have to pay 5.95$ because of VAT (19% in Germany). You get the 5$ (minus 5% for patreon), and you don't have to pay VAT a second time, or?
On the other hand, if I pay you 5$ directly, you have to subtract UK VAT (20%) afterwards?
Please understand me correctly, I want to make sure you get the most out of my money :-)
