Only yesterday, the Federal Government announced that the sales tax will be reduced from 19% to 16% from July. We want to pass this reduction on to our customers right now. That's why all our products are now 3% cheaper, so we pack one more! We didn't think long about whether we want to earn more net or pass on the reduction to our customers. By July at the latest, we would have recalculated the prices with the new VAT rate. The reduction now in June means that we earn net less. Of course, we hope that purchases will not be delayed until July.
We are honest: even though we are an online retailer, the pandemic has also hit us. We have sold less since March than in previous months. We therefore welcome the reduction in VAT and hope that the whole economy will emerge positively from these difficult times. What is even more important to us, however, is that our customers and visitors to the website are also healthy and feel a positive trend.
Personally, I hope you are doing well. The confidence, lots of great emails and the positive reviews have made the launch of Shop4Tesla really special. We are working to expand our offering and have recently added our Wireless Charger for the Tesla Model 3. Yesterday we received a large shipment of samples for new products. We will now test these and then order them in larger quantities, provided the quality can convince us.
