  1. Well, 50p is a half pound so I guess so, yes.
  2. What are we looking at for a total landed price in GBP after shipping and any import duty/VAT?
  3. Sending back ‘return to sender’ won’t cost them anything, Royal Mail don’t charge for that. If you don’t want to receive any more just send one back marked ‘Gone away’. They will think you have moved then and should stop sending them.
  4. You can’t really assign a melt value to plated items. You have no way of knowing how thick the plating is so no way to tell the silver content. It will be extremely thin in either case and to extract it would likely cost more in time and materials than the value of silver reclaimed.
  5. Are you referring to eBay Buy It Now? If so, do you have a link to a relevant HMRC page? I’ve not heard of this before.
  6. @PansPurse I never spotted your forum signature or heard the quote before but I like it 👍
  7. Freeman Of The Land or Sovereign Citizens as they like to be known in the US are hilarious at best. Here's one trying out the kind of theory mentioned above by the entity known as sixgun with amusing results
  8. In the end I decided it’s not worth the risk. Becoming VAT registered actually gave us a kick up the butt to expand further. We couldn’t increase our prices to compensate for the VAT element as it would have made us uncompetitive. So for a while our profit decreased until our turnover grew to a certain level. The incentive to increase turnover was certainly there!
  9. It would likely be known as artificial separation and be in serious trouble with HMRC. I looked in to it several years ago when I had to VAT register. To make it work, the two businesses would really have to work from completely separate premises and not share any resources at all. Even then I believe there has to be a good reason for the split - if the only reason for the split is to avoid VAT then it’s probably not allowed. There was a case where a husband and wife ran 2 separate and different businesses (can’t remember details but something like carpenter and caterer) but because they were run from the same premises and shared resources, HMRC deemed them as one entity for VAT purposes. They lost an appeal.
  10. I’m not a fan of most of their reported replies but this is brilliant
  11. Last time I had a voucher I just messaged the seller and asked them to relist their coin in the collectibles category. They were happy to oblige.
  12. I wouldn’t wish too soon! If supply of silver suddenly decreases in price then so does the value of your current stack on the second hand market.
  13. Looks like Nigel Farage!
