This reduction on VAT..Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
^ I second most of that, other than the NI being the area where contributions are lessened... Our health service needs every penny..

If he really wanted to help out he would have frozen council tax for the next 2 years and dropped the vat on fuel prices... ALL fuel, including bloody diesel ..!!!


I'm looking to buy my son a laptop for Christmas but am going to wait til about a week before the day.. I've not noticed much in the way of reductions there as yet..

I thought the price of hob nobs might come down with this reduction on VAT but sadly
after investigating the biscuits isle in Sainsburys yesterday the prices hadn't changed at all.

VAT was reduced by 2.5% on everything Vatable except gas and electricity as the VAT on them is only 5% and EU regulations wont allow VAT to go below 5% nor can it be removed completely. Duty was increased on tobacco, alcohol and petrol/diesel to cover the reduction of VAT on these. I'm ashamed to say that Brown and Darling are Scottish - and no we don't want them back up here, that's why we have a SNP government I think a better way to give people more money would have been to raise taxable allowances by at least £500 but only on the basic rate of tax so most people would notice a difference in their pay packets. Just my opinion

I went into Dorothy Perkins and bought a few necessary items.. Well it's Christmas I need new clothes... When I looked at my receipt, it states that the VAT is now charged at 15% with a reducton of 2.12% from the original 17.5% VAT made at the point of sale... So hmmm Dotty Pee are keeping .38 of a % on every sale they make... Naughty naughty Dotty Pee... I'm going to tell Gok .!!!
