Pixmania-Pro and Sony Style VAT Free for business

I dont know if this has been mentioned before, but if you have access to a business which is VAT registered (owned/work for) and can have goods delivered to the business premises you can buy things VAT free from Pixmania-Pro.co.uk and Sony Style.

I know how people feel about Pixmania, but for me it was a lifesaver just a few months back (nearly, lol) as I was able to buy a larger lcd with the money I saved. They are not cheaper on everything (and seem to have become a little more epxensive since I started buying from them a few years ago.
Something I learned the other day was that Pixmania is actually owned by DSG.
I have also successfully done this with sony style when buying a laptop, and it was relatively painless (I rang them and ordered within 15 mins).

The VAT free is based upon some obscure rule which allows intro community B2B sales to be classed as VAT free.

My dad works for TNT, is it likely I'd be able to order something in his name (me paying for it obviously, and with his permission), and have it delivered to his work and be able to take advantage of this? (I doubt it'd be from either of those companies, but it makes me assume it'd be possible with other companies too)

(Though I guess the question is, is it likely that he'd be allowed to have something delivered to his workplace?)

It should work - you will need their VAT number though (should be easy enough to find). I think all they do is check the VAT number correlates to the business on some database they have access to - which is what Pixmania did we me (I had typed the wrong number in and they emailed me back to re confirm).
