VAT changes Jan 2015

From 1 January 2015 VAT will be charged at the UK rate of 20%, previously Press1 charged a VAT rate of 23% (The Irish VAT rate).
This means if VAT applies to your account costs will reduce by 3%.

If you are a UK VAT registered business there will be no change, VAT will still not be charged as inter-EU supply rules still apply.

This is happening because Press1 is required to comply with the EU Directive 2008/8/EC for VAT. This directive stipulates that customers are charged the VAT rate of the EU member state to which they belong.
