Voted cold as the first thing i checked was a camera the EX-1080. BA price £179. Even minus 17.5% = £147. On line prices Amazon etc £134. Not much cop if they overcharge you to start with.

[FONT=Arial]£179 minus 17.5% isn't the pre-VAT price, it's just £179 less 17.5% :thumbsup:[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]The easiest way I know to work out the pre-VAT price is divide the purchase price by 117.5 and then multiply by 100 which gives you the price before VAT [/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]£179 / 117.5= £1.5234 then x 100= £152.34 + VAT (17.5%) = £179.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]Hope that helps?[/FONT]
