VAT reduction

From Jan 1st 2010 VAT was reduced from 21.5% to 21%.
All VAT savings are past on to consumers.

The change in VAT affects pricing as follows

The following charges excluding VAT remain unchanged (ie. the price including VAT will be lower than before)
– All call charges
– All monthly charges

The charges excluding VAT were changed (ie. the price including VAT remains the same as before VAT change)
– All setup/activation fee’s
– Top-ups for Pay As You Use
There is no loss of benefit to the consumer for these changes as the full charge amount is credited to the balance on account (for example the pay-as-you-use top-up will still be 20 but calls are cheaper so the balance will last longer).

All charges can be viewed on our website.
