Thought this was a good deal as it's gone live before the official date for the VAT drop.
We are pleased to announce that the new 15%
VAT prices are effective immediately in all our
PC World stores and on pcworld.co.uk
How does this affect you?
All the prices currently displayed in store & online include VAT at 17.5%. However these prices will be discounted at the checkout both instore & online to be equivalent to the new 15% VAT prices. This means a discount of 2.13% on the displayed price.
Why is this discount 2.13% and not 2.5%?
The example below illustrates how the 2.13% discount is calculated:
Current ticket price includes VAT at 17.5%
On a product that sells for £100 the VAT FREE price is £85.11
To calculate the new price including VAT at 15% we must add 15% to the VAT FREE price of £85.11, which equals £97.87.
Please note for online purchases only the product price will be discounted at the checkout. Our delivery charges have already been ammended to reflect the revised VAT rates. E-Top up purchases including itunes cards are excluded from this offer. For collect at store orders, discount will be applied instore when you make your purchase.http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/editorial/vat_savings
