The first little “Brownie” from the budget has just been highlighted:
“VAT and postal A.96 – From 31 January 2011 VAT will be applied at the standard rate to certain postal services provided by the universal service provider (Royal Mail).”
Did the price of stamps and other stuff in the future just go up by 17.5% or more?
So much for his comment of “I have no further announcements on VAT”
Is there really no end to the mendacity of this government?
