    iPhone 4 and the VAT increase.

    Hi there,

    I know a lot of you here hate Apple and anything even remotely associated with steve jobs, but for those who can afford their products, I was wondering if the upcoming VAT increase on Tuesday will affect the prices on Apple's website right away? Or even the phones sold in stores for that matter. Same can be applied for any product due to be released next week really, I'm just curious as to how long it takes for the VAT increase to take effect on newly released items.

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends on when they say the new vat will run from.

    If it's right away, I suppose they'll all have to add it somehow, but I suspect they'll set a date when the new rate comes in.

    On news 24 this morning I'm sure I heard someone say it could go as high as 25% !!!

    If it does end up being that high then it looks like i'll be spending a lot of money on Tuesday.

    Me too.

    25% VAT is sure to stimulate us into buying more. Surely April the 1st only happens once or did Camoron miss the joke.

    I would imagine the 25% is to scare you then when it's 20% you say oh well not so bad. If it does end up being 25% It will be time to move to somewhere that has a more stable economy, like Greece or Iceland.
