Is it just me or are Amazon charging the same amount of VAT regardless of whether you choose free shipping or standard £6 shipping. It looks like even if you select free shipping they charge you VAT on the £6 shipping regardless.

VAT is due on the cost of the item plus shipping. If you qualify for free shipping they will deduct this after the VAT calculation, but VAT amount will not change.

It may work out cheaper to sign up for a month of Prime at £7.99 if item amount is under €21 ex VAT as you won't pay VAT at all.

The "free" shipping is a discount, so yes they do charge you.

The difference in the new regime is the VAT on the full price, which can also affect some other discounts.
