  1. Awesome, Ben – very handy. Any chance you’d submit it to my cheat sheet site (cheatography.com)? You can link to it here, or create a full page / PDF version, whichever you prefer πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Dave – would be happy to submit it. I didn’t realise your site was open to submissions. I used your original cheat sheets quite a bit so would be happy to contribute πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks Ben – just noticed you’d added it (external links go through an approval process – sorry for the delay). Thanks very much! πŸ™‚

  2. Very useful
    ps used with MySql for tax summary (and several otherplaces) :
    SELECT …
    IF(b.country_id NOT IN (‘”.implode(“‘,'”, EU_COUNTRIES).”‘), ‘EXEMPT’,
    IF(i.tax_amount > 0.00, ‘TAXABLE’, ‘ZERO’)) as class,
    … where EU_COUNTRIES is a constant

    1. perfect use for it! πŸ™‚ I actually had to do some stuff for tax summaries a couple of days ago as well!

  3. Important: This is a list of european countries, not EU (European Union)

    Countries like Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Switzerland, Norway are not in the EU.

  4. Thanks man! But please do clarify in the post that this is not a list of EU countries but of European countries. EU rules rarely apply to Russia…

    1. EU All: AT, BE, BG, CY, CZ, DE, DK, EE, ES, FI, FR, GB, GR, HR, HU, IE, IT, LT, LU, LV, MT, NL, PL, PT, RO, SE, SI, SK
      MU All: AT, BE, CY, DE, EE, ES, FI, FR, GR, IE, IT, LT, LU, LV, MT, NL, PT, SI, SK

  5. Moldova (MD) is missing.
    Azerbaijan (AZ) technically not in Europe but present in many European associations (like Armenia for example) is also not present.

    Thank you for your work

    1. Ha – yeah, this is an interesting point. As I suspect you know the list is a list of European countries, not a list of EU countries. When I made this I probably needed a list of EU member states, but it’s not what I made. For the cookie law a list of EU members would have been better, but this is quite old now so I’ll keep it as is πŸ™‚
