Thank you NigelB.

On top of the VAT "errors" the company quoted me for over GPB 7 per lot of printer ink sent by post to France. Each lot was 6 cartridges, let us say 24 x 7 x 7 cm at the absolute outside. This is even worse when you know that they advertise free delivery within the UK!

Thanks agin for replying

There are three rates of VAT in the UK. Food, books etc at 0%, domestic fuel, female sanitary products etc at 5% then everything else at 17.5% which would include your printer ink.

17.5% on most goods.
