  • New car at 15% or 17.5% vat

    Tashyboy is looking to get his new car within the next couple of weeks. Anyway due to the forthcoming announcement that VAT will be reduced to 15%, does that mean the tash and others will be paying 15% on there new cars or what. Just been on a couple of sites and it has already been suggested that some unscrupulous dealers will charge 17.5% but only pay 15% to mr darling.

    Not suggesting for one minute that vauxhall are one of those dealers, But the differance to tashyboys pocket is about £425 on a new Arctic.

    Would like to know exactly where we stand as prospective new car owners please.

    Personal abuse and witty comments greatly appreciated.

    Bumpkin has started a thread on this. Bumpkin says go there. Bumpkin thinks they will have to pass the cut on.

                If the 15% is in the pre-budget report, won't it be March when this kicks in?

                      As said - think you need to wait for the announcement to find out when it will kick in

                        I think greedy businesses will hoover up the 2.5% , do you reeally think that when yo go into argos, they are going to discount everything by 2.5% (ish) , can`t see iot myself, and we all know car manufacturers are being hit hard, and they are the worst of the lot !!

                          Might depend on what agreements, if any you have signed, not completely sure tho. Would hate to think that some would have to pay more han others for the same car, although that happens all over britain and the world anyway, so whats new!

                            Wouldn't be surprised if it is post dated to March 2010.
