Vat

OK then, its gone down 2.5%! great.
Any ideas which chandlerys have actually reduced their prices? - Seen 2 online that are advertising 15% VAT, but same inc VAT prices as last week when VAT was shown as 17.5%
Looking for some fishing kit and some Dubarrys.
Suggestions on who is keeping the 2.5% and who is passing it on ?

Aren't the prices set, then VAT added on?

I always see the UK stuff listed as a price +VAT.

Aladdin's Cave were doing a promotion on Dubarrys last week, picked up a pair of the full leather jobbies for just under 145 - you need to sign up for their loyalty card but there is no obligation on anything with that.

Possibly cheaper deals on-line but wife needed to try them on!

Alternatively, and closer for you, I noticed that Pascale Atkey in Cowes had them at something like 15% off list - I have a feeling that there are a number of places doing this.

Anyway, cheaper than the 2.5% VAT off!

Shamrock Quay can also be very good for gear like this. Give them a ring - you could have a pleasant surprise. They also have a loyalty card scheme where you get a cheque back at the end of the year.

jky,
Generally in the UK, consumer goods are listed at the price inclusive of VAT, whereas business to business transactions normally quote the price excluding VAT, as most businesses are able usually able to reclaim the VAT. Sometimes people who's business is mixed between B2B and B2C will use the ex VAT price as its a more attractive "headline rate". Anyone quoting you for export to the US should be quoting the ex VAT price as exports are exempt.

Hi Guys

My first post!, i work in Shamrock Chandlery in Southampton, mainly on the website side of things, we have altered all our prices by 2.5% on the tills but not on the ticket price as this would be a logistical nightmare! , Following from an earlier post we also have our Boat Owners Card which can earn you up to 12.5% discount which is reedemable via a credit check at the end of the season,

Regards


Matt

Thanks. I'm not really up on your tax laws (or mine, for that matter.)
