Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Look out for the next VAT increase due at the start of next year: VAT will be charged at the new rate of 20% on all invoices issued on or after 4 January 2011

VAT goes back up to 17.5%

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Just a quick reminder that any payments received by us before the end of December will be charged at the lower VAT rate of 15%. From 1st of January 2010 all invoices will be charged at 17.5%

New VAT Rate of 15% now implemented

Monday, December 1st, 2008

All invoices issued today (Monday 1 December 2008) will be charged at the new VAT rate of 15% instead of the old rate of 17.5% giving our customers a total saving of a fantastic, unprecedented, unimaginable, generous, overhyped 2.5% !. In fact the actual saving is a bit less – concentrate carefully:

Old rate 17.5%:
Net total: £100.00
VAT @ 17.5 = £17.50
Toatal: = £117.50

New VAT rate 15%:

Net total: £100.00
VAT @ 17.5 = £15.00
Toatal: = £115.00

Total (post VAT saving) = £2.50
which is only 2.13% of the old total of £117.5 (try it on your calculator: 100*2.5/117.5
