  1. Vat free 10oz QB's

    I'm not a vat registered business so don't know the mechanics of it but it seems to me that what you say is correct only from the business viewpoint. The customer pays vat on the total selling amount, which is the desired, from Government perspective, effect. Don't forget that the original seller, the manufacturer or wholesaler, will have paid vat on the first sale as well. This added to the vat difference you speak of will mean the Government gets the vat on the full retail selling price.

  23. Today I bought.....

    Aussie sovereigns (and presumably halves) were used extensively at the time for circulation but mainly for trade payments especially with India, China and the Far East. Is it not inconceivable that most were melted at some point to use the gold for other things and that the few that survived will show their age. Wear was exacerbated by the composition of the alloy which contained mainly silver not copper. It was a feature of the early Aussie sovs that they wore out very quickly and needed relacing.
  24. Customs Importation Codes

    Received this reply back from the Perth MInt regarding the 5% vat HS code; The HS code 7118.90.20 which we use for all silver numismatic legal tender coins is correct and it appears that the broker in the UK has made different classification to minimise VAT but we can’t really do anything about it from our end. 9705 is the correct classification if the coins are of numismatic interest (i.e. for a collector) but please note the below exceptions from the HS explanatory notes… Additional Notes. 1.- (a) Coins which are legal tender in the country of issue, including such coins in presentation cases, are not covered by 9705.00.00. (b) Coins are not covered by 9705.00.00 as collections and collectors' pieces of numismatic interest unless presented as collections or as separate pieces clearly intended for a particular collection.
  25. question about sovereigns

    You need to get your head around this if you're going to be buying gold coins. Sovereigns: weight of coin; 8g coin (near enough) of 22ct gold. Therefore pure gold content = 22/24 * 8 = 7.32g or 0.2354 Tr. oz.
