e-book digital download more expensive than paperback

On two recent occasions when I have been looking to purchase a new book online, I have noticed that the Kindle edition has been more expensive than the equivalent paperback edition.

I felt sure it must be far cheaper to produce the digital download than the physical paper book.

It turns out that value added tax applies on ebooks that does not apply on the physical version.
