Price Comparison - With and Without VAT

Recommended Posts

I have just joined forum and relatively new to stacking. This morning I was comparing prices on 1 kilo coins. I have purchased from both Bleyer and STG in the past. My initial thought was to purchase from STG due to the absence of VAT. 

STG Price for 1 kilo koala was £468.22, which I thought was very reasonable. However when you add the postage cost of £16.95 and the 2% for using card which is another £9.70, you have a total of £494.87. Bleyer cost for 1 kilo coin deliveded was £499.86. A difference of a fiver, plus you would receive items ordered the next day. All considered this is not much of a difference, indeed some may prefer to buy home rather than away for the sake of an extra fiver.

When browsing the forum and youtube, I came across BYB's group buys which I think is a great idea, I will take him up on his very kind offer in the future. (if he's still doing it) 

cheers

Thanks BYB, I already made purchase but will be in touch in the future. Those prices on GS.be look good, however I'm having a bit of bother with their website.

It is not the best designed one for sure.

Make sure to check out transferwise if you order directly - then you save a lot on bank fees and the 2%

You might also look at http://gold.de for reduced VAT coins - this is a price comparison website. You may find cheaper coins there - you have to battle with a bit of German to navigate. There are cheaper 1kg Koalas on there.

 

For my order of three would come out as £14.90 a oz.

Chard will do 31 1oz coins for under £500 including VAT, and CGT free.
