Microsoft Office mark up a rip off for Britain

Saturday, 2 March 2013 — by

So there I was, on the cusp of purchasing a copy of Microsoft Office for Mac Home & Business. $219.99 in the US, which —  based on exchange rates — should be about £146. But then I swapped from the US to the UK store. £219.99. Uh, eh?

No export costs. No translation costs. No export taxes that I’m aware of. So why the massive mark up in price? I thought we’d done with these highly dubious practices? Obviously not.
