In theory, sales tax is only collected once. Whilst VAT can be collected along the production chain it is, exactly like sales tax, only paid by the end user. If you are a business buying product from someone else then any VAT you pay on those products can be reclaimed as "Input Tax" from the Inland Revenue - but you should be able to obtain the products at prices excluding VAT if you are not the end user. There is a page explaining VAT and small businesses at http://www.inlandrevenue.gov.uk/startingup/cut9.htm >[I say "in theory" >because some used items get taxed when they are resold.] > Used items are VAT exempt. -- Kennedy Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed; A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.
