    withdrawn 1kg and 500g Silver Bars

    Yes, but you have to be making currently £11700 PROFIT in one year from any sales before you start paying any CGT and then you only pay the tax on anything above the allowance. Most people won’t have to worry about CGT.

    2019 Gold Bullion Cheap

    I’ve already received one a couple of weeks ago from Harrington & Byrne and if you look in the ‘Today I received’ thread, so have loads of other forum members. Dont know about the company in the first post of this thread though as the only person I can see posting about them is the person who started this thread, who is a new user and hasn’t posted about anything else yet.

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    It won't let me put a different delivery address to the billing address - how did you get round that or did it work for you?

    wanted Want to buy £400 Gold 2-3% over spot

    I've got one from them that I would be happy to part with for £400 via Paypal In all serious though, I think you are correct in that they don't take Paypal. I'm not aware of any of the big UK dealers that do?

    Great looking Rooster you have there! Thanks for the thought. Although you are absolutely correct in that I need another, as more of a stacker than a collector (AKA tight b*stard) I couldn't bring myself to pay that much of a premium.

    2019 Gold Bullion Cheap

    A sovereign is not 1/4oz of gold. They are 22 carat and contain 0.2353544oz of gold. At today’s spot price of £1017 that makes it £239.

    2019 Gold Bullion Cheap

    They’re loss leaders. These companies make their money selling lots of other overpriced coins to people who don’t shop around. Once you’ve bought from them they send you offers for other coins at ridiculously high prices (that can usually be bought cheaper elsewhere). I got one of the 2019 sovs from Harrington & Byrne for £239. Nothing wrong with it. I opted out of email offers but they send a letter every week offering me something else at a silly price. I just throw them in the bin but I’m sure plenty of people buy them, particularly as they offer split payments (pay 25% every month for 4 months for example).

    I’ve got a bone to pick with you lot! Look what you’ve made me do... My first. It’s bloody lovely and I want more now So much more interesting than sovereigns, although I will continue to collect those too.

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    Several members here, including me, have already received 2019 sovereigns from Harrington & Byrne. That's a good price. I got one when they were £239, then they went up to £249 so looks like they still have more left in stock than expected! The only thing to note is that you will start receiving lots of offers in the post for other coins - I just chuck them in the bin.

    What if We Have a No Deal Brexit ?

    If silver in the UK suddenly became VAT free, wouldn’t that potentially devalue every ones holdings? At the moment, a nothing special 1oz silver Britannia usually changes hands on this forum for somewhere in the range of £14 - £18. Today a brand new Brit can be purchased from Atkinson’s for £21.58 inc vat. If it suddenly becomes VAT free, you could then buy that brand new Brit for £17.97. All of a sudden, those second hand Brit’s don’t look so attractive. So the knock on effect is to devalue the second hand prices is it not?

    What is this JM Kilo Bar worth ?

    If I had the choice of one with and one without the engraving at the same price I would definitely choose the one without.

    FOIA on silver VAT

    Definitely. Will be interesting to see how they wiggle out of a straight answer!

    What is your favourite novelty silver coin?

    Not sure if this counts as novelty but I love my time capsule coin I got from a member on this forum. The design is intricate but also the fact it’s square and distorted certainly makes it different.

    FOIA on silver VAT

    It will be interesting to see their answer but I’m not sure they will have a breakdown of it. My company is VAT registered and we sell all sorts of things but when I do my VAT returns I don’t provide a breakdown of how much VAT relates to each different item. It just includes figures for turnover, expenses and total VAT owed. If I started selling tons of silver, HMRC would have no idea how much VAT relates to the silver as opposed to all the other items I sell. I don’t know if precious metal dealers are required to give a more detailed breakdown on their VAT returns but I doubt it. So when they pay their quarterly VAT I doubt HMRC know what proportion relates to silver. I suppose a good proportion of it will be related to silver what with gold being VAT free but I’m sure they sell other items that attract VAT. The only way I could see them being able to match any specific VAT amounts to silver would be for imports from outside of the EU as they might have the figures recorded against the commodity codes used on the customs forms.

    I ran it through a few different online code breakers but it didn’t even come close.

    Ha! Yes, I’ve seen it now. So it’s basically the longest spam post ever!

    Royal Mail stock?

    Don’t forget the Post Office don’t deliver anything. Post Office and Royal Mail are two separate entities. There is already a Post Office collection service but it relies on the individual vendors offering it - https://www.postoffice.co.uk/mail/collection-services eBay offers a click and collect service to most Argos stores on many listings. And Amazon can deliver to collection lockers in most parts of the country.
  23. I’m sure in many cases they are shrinking the product AND raising the prices!
