Welcome to HUKD gidface

With the voucher, some items can be cheaper..

Thanks, been here for a while, but only recently felt the need to register...

Well I looked and I couldnt see any, for example Motorola K1 £83.00 the same phone is 49.99 at Sainsburys. They look like a catalogue stock clearance site, so the "original" price is the exorbitent catalogue price i.e. "Xbox 360 Full System: was £459.00, NOW £298.00" . With the voucher its almost comparable to high street prices...

You are right edi.

So is the fact that these items are quite a few. It will help if everybody reply with product code if they found a real bargain on it.

There are some bargains to be had using this code!!!!

e.g. Binatone Fusion 2210 Triple = £13.20 +p&p. These are £45 on Amazon.

If they are refunding the VAT then the discount is actually less than 15%.

They aren't, it's just a 17.5% discount. If they were taking VAT off, the discount would be 14.9%, but they're actually taking the full 17.5 off - just checked

Funny you should say that, I had a small beef with a shop that offered VAT free on furniture but when I worked it out it was actually about 14% and the salesman said even though they say 17.5% off its actually 14% they pay to the IR. Never figured it out why but what you just said reminded me of it.

Hot, some nice clothes stuff there, g/f will be happy.

There are some good deals to be had, regardless of whether they've increased the prices!

Just found a pair of Diesel jeans which with the discount worked out at only £32! The cheapest I'd found them anywhere!

Little bit worried that the company is actually a division of Littlewoods though, esp. with the bad reputation it has on this board! :-D

Voted hot anyway, thanks!!!!

This is because the 17.5% VAT is 17.5% of the original amount, not of the amount that contains the VAT, so the salesman was talking out of his backside (as he probably didn't understand) - they do pay 17.5% to the IR, depending on what type of item it is, obviously.

eg. The pre-vat price of something is £100. 17.5% VAT here would be £17.50, so the total price including VAT is £117.50.

If they said to you that they would pay the VAT on this item, they would pay £17.50 (17.5% of £100), which is correct. £17.50 is 14.9% of £117.50, which is what will confuse people, but that's because you're getting confused with the calculation.

I'm sorry if that's not clear, I'm ill at the moment. Cna't think of a better way to explain it.

anastasia, :thumbsup: Your explanation made perfect sense to me!:thumbsup:

More generally...

P(x) is the price you pay with x being price before VAT added. So;

P(x)=1.175x. If we apply 17.5% discount to this, we get new price Q Q(x)=0.825*1.175x=0.969375x (not just 1)

Thus, to get just x, we solve a*1.175x=x for a getting a=0.85106383. 1-a=0.14893617, or nearly 14.9%.

Brilliant! :santa:

Reped the techical explanation and the sensible explanation lol

Just trying to explain it another way.....

Simply if an item is selling for £100 (inclusive VAT). Discount on it will be £14.89 as the original price was £85.11 before VAT.

If they say they are taking off VAT, it means * It will be 14.89% discount of the final / VAT inc price (£100) or you can say * It will be 17.5 % discount of the original / pre-VAT price (£85.11)

Except if you are on the flat-rate VAT scheme, where you a pay a % of the total to the VAT man - you charge at 17.5% of pre-vat price, but only pay a % to the vat man of the vat-inclusive total, but with no deductions for input vat. The rate for retail is 6%

btw although owned by littlewoods ive ordered loads from these inc tvs and never had any probs

No longer on Quidco because they never paid up (speaking from experience)

I have spent an hour looking at various items. No great bargain in spite of 17.5 % off

great post just wondering if anyone has purchase the baby born magic bed and no longer need it just was wanting one but none left
