Christmas Delivery and 2011 VAT Changes

Monday, December 20th, 2010

As you are probably aware the UK VAT rate is due to be increased to 20%, effective from the 4th January 2011. This will affect website orders in the following ways:

  • Orders placed 22/12/2010 before 1pm: These will be invoiced and dispatched on the 22nd using our next-day courier service. Orders will be delivered in time for Christmas and invoiced at the 2010 VAT rate of 17.5%
  • Orders placed 22/12/2010 from 1pm onwards: Due to our Christmas closure, orders placed after our Christmas delivery cutoff will be invoiced at the new 2011 VAT rate of 20%, and dispatched in the New Year.

Our offices reopen on the 4th January 2011, with deliveries starting from the 5th. If you have any questions about Christmas / New Year deliveries or how the VAT changes will affect your order, please contact us by emailing
