Shame on you Contabo
So I had been somewhat ok with the several contabo vps I had been using.
But what they are doing this month with a temporarily VAT tax reduction in Germany is just shameful.
Background: VAT in Germany is 19%. The german government decided to reduce this to 16% from July to December.
Contabo is not reducing there gross prices (incl. VAT), but instead keeping the gross prices and by that increasing the net prices, as taxes go down from 19% to 16%.
So companies in Germany are paying more for Contabo products with this rising of net prices than they did before because of Contabo's handling of those tax reductions.
That's a joke.
Everyone: don't buy Contabo products anymore.
They are not worth it and should loose every customer from now on.
(Remember, it's not the IT infrastructure companies that lost turnover in this Corona crisis).
@contabo_m : Anything to declare in defending this move?
