I'm thinking about getting a musical instrument made by a maker in Finland. At the moment without VAT it's cheaper than if I have it built in Australia, where I am from. I currently need to pay €700 at the start of the commission and then the remaining €1453 once the instrument is finished
However, I am travelling in Europe next year and will be in Finland around when the instrument will be finished.
If I pay the remaining money while in Finland will I pay VAT (24%) on any part of the purchase?
