As of 1 January 2015, GEERDES midimusic e.K. is renamed GEERDES media e.K. The company is handed over from Mr Geerdes, who is retiring, to his son Mr Hübner.
Also on 1 January 2015, an EU directive for digital goods comes into force, which states that digital goods must be charged at the VAT rate of the buyer's country throughout the EU. As usual, GEERDES does not pass on these additional costs to the customers.
