    I'm going to order a custom shop warwick but I got an email from them with the price and they said to also include a 16% VAT. What does VAT mean, I have no clue? Thanks!

    Value added tax or some such nonsense. Think of it as the be-all and end-all of sales tax.

    I'm guessing you are ordering it from overseas?

    Value Added Tax. It's basically a European sales tax. I won't get into the details.
