Sidmouth traders braced for VAT hike
SIDMOUTH’S traders are being urged to prepare for a VAT hike in January.
SIDMOUTH traders are being urged to prepare for a VAT hike in January.
Retailers must charge the new 20 per cent rate on all standard-rated takings received on or after January 4, 2011.
But, if a customer pays on or after that date for something they take away or have delivered before January 4, the sale takes place before the rate change and the 17.5 per cent rate should be used.
Retailers who use electronic tills will have to re-programme them, so that the correct VAT rate is shown on till receipts.
