ChrisSIlver reacted to BackyardBullion in Good & Bad news from Mr & Mrs Backyard Bullion
Mrs Backyard Bullion and I have some good and bad news to share with you all.
First, the good news. Backyard Bullion (the business) has been growing well and we are excited at what the future may bring.
This leads us onto the bad news. With such success and growth comes the inevitable attention from the tax man. As such Backyard Bullion is required to register for VAT (Sales tax for those non UK/EU readers).
This will of course have some significant effects on our business but more importantly for you as our customers. We have always been and always will be, fully committed to the strength and quality of the Backyard Bullion brand and products. The pieces we make are and will continue to be of the highest possible quality. We are a small business (Mrs BYB and myself) and have no plans or desire to hire staff. Each piece we make, be it small or large, will be unique and have been made by us with the same love, care and attention we have always put into our work.
This means that effective from 1st April 2019 we will be increasing our pricing to accommodate for part of the VAT liability we incur for our sales.
Any items that have been pre-ordered but not paid for will have their original prices honoured even though the payment date might be after 1st April 2019. This seems the fairest thing to do for these pre-ordered items. However, for items ordered or purchased after the 1st April 2019 you will notice the price change. The most obvious product to be affected at this stage is the “1 oz & 250g Silver Forum Bars” that have not yet been reserved/paid for already.
VAT registration is something we never envisaged happening at the outset of this business but it is now a reality that cannot be ignored.
Whilst the bad news is certainly bad and only time will tell the true effect on the business we are confident about our brand and are excited about future projects we will try to bring to you.
We want to finish this announcement with a very large and heartfelt thank you to everyone out there that has supported the brand, be it through our hand poured silver, YouTube channel and group orders over this last 3 years. Your support means the world to us and we will endeavour to continue to bring you the best quality video entertainment and hand poured silver in the future!
If you have any comments or questions then please feel free to ask them here on this thread or contact me directly.
All the best to you all!
Mr & Mrs Backyard Bullion
ChrisSIlver got a reaction from motorbikez in Please read: Commenting in sales topics - no unsolicited posts
Just to catch up on this, there have been a number of posts recently where other members are jumping on other peoples sales topics. For example a member lists an item for sale, and someone posts in that topic something like "you can get this cheaper from this place" or "that is too expensive", firstly sabotaging other peoples sales topics isn't allowed, and secondly some of these posts have found to be factually inaccurate and when adding on shipping costs to the buyers country have found to be incorrect.
If you are not an interested party in the topic then please do not post in these for sale topics. These types of posts are unsolicited.
Obviously wanted topics are different, wanted posts are for when a member is looking to buy an item, in these topics you can link the member to different dealers, or to message them if you have that item for sale, or know someone who is looking to sell that item etc.
To sellers: Please report unwanted, unrelated or unsolicited posts in your sales topics using the report button and they can be removed to tidy up your sale topic.
ChrisSIlver got a reaction from JaggyThistle in Buy / sell for ancillary items
I have edited the description of this forum so it is clearer
It now reads:
@JaggyThistle Any of the items you listed can be sold in this section. If there was sufficient sales topics in this section then in the future can separate it into a section for PM relating items (but not containing PM), and non-PM related topics. But for the moment the above forum should be fine.
ChrisSIlver reacted to BackyardBullion in 1 oz Silver Forum Bars (2019)
Production is well underway for these 1 oz bars
More details will follow in time on the whole process of creating these bars, but for those of you who don't know I pour these by eye to get 1 oz. For every one that is more than about 1.07 ozt I remelt (and the ones under 1 oz).
Sometimes you hit that nail right in the sweet spot, how about this for a 1 oz bar!
We use trading standards approved and calibrated scales to make sure that what we say is 1 ozt is indeed 1 ozt!

ChrisSIlver reacted to HelpingHands in Stacking Investment
There are some useful threads consolidated here
In short, if you want to buy silver then you can buy from Europe without VAT eg. https://www.silver-to-go.com/en/
For smaller orders you could join the group orders through Backyardbullion often ordered from https://www.europeanmint.com/
For gold you can buy in the UK eg https://atkinsonsbullion.com/
As to what that's up to you. Some people buy the cheapest bullion whilst others buy more collectible coins.

That would still be an illegal raffle.
To everyone: please do not use this topic to discuss ways to breach the regulations.
The OP can auction this item if they would like, in the trade section, and as a standard auction, i.e. people who want to bid bid, the highest bidder wins, that would be the only way to proceed.
