    SilverSnake reacted to BackyardBullion in Good & Bad news from Mr & Mrs Backyard Bullion   
    Hello everybody!
    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

    Now, whilst Brexit is making most of us want to emigrate or crawl into the fetal position in a dark room...
    We can all take solace in the fact that the group order has arrived, been processed and is in the post today!
    Shiny shiny for you all!
    Believe it or not.....there are still 4 people who have NOT paid for their postage!!!!!!!
    Get on it!

    ORDER IS COMPLETE!!
    Thanks for a busy and amazing weekend all!
    The total order (excluding capsules) is as follows:

    As you can see the total oz'age was 1532
    CONGRATULATIONS @P3T3R !!!!
    You were closest, a 1/2 oz shark will swim its way to you soon! The question is are you a hammerhead or great white man? Also, how did you guess it right!?!?!?!

    Now starts the wait - we will update you all as best as we can with shipping and estimates of delivery. 
    You can all expect some postage invoices probably the middle of next week. It has been a long weekend and I am having the day off tomorrow 🙂 
    Have a good one all!

    The price of silver is heading down ready for the weekend 😁
    I was going to order a load of Dragon coin bars but now I need the Yales too. I just need to sell my soul so I can afford both 😈

    I will have to take part in this order now, the only question is figuring out how much I can actually afford.

    UPDATE TIME
    Ever fancied owning a silver depiction of a pox ridden goat like creature with rotating boar tusks?
    Today is your lucky day, because The European Mint has just taken physical delivery of their stock and that means we can included them in this (what will no doubt be) a pretty intensive group order. 
    For the avoidance of doubt....
    It's Yale time!!

    Also, we will have BIG news at some point in the next few weeks, so watch this space.

    I don't have the energy to put together a grand list - so you will have to make do with salivating over this weekend's order alone.....
    I am off to lie in the fetal position in a dark room....maybe with a bottle of scotch......

    €26,500 this weekend with €44,500 total!
    Your important deadlines for today are:
    Orders to me before 4pm
    Payment before 5pm
    You have been warned
    Update on future group orders.....
    Whichever way Brexit goes this will be the last group order for a while - we need a breather because including this order possibly totalling €50,000 we have (or will have) processed €90,000+ worth of orders totalling over 5000 oz of silver to over 110 unique customers.....in two months.....we are feeling the pressure already and we have not even taken delivery of this monstrosoty that is the February group order. 
    Assuming a No Deal brexit - no idea when the next order will be. We will have to wait and see. Maybe if we get a trade deal with the USA we can do a US group order!
    Assuming an extension/cancellation of article 50 - next order will likely be in Late March/Early April and will coincide with the 1 oz Silver Forum Bars.
    Assuming a continuation of the free trade agreement in a transition period - should be business as usual and as above.
