Hi All,

Thanks to you all and The Silver Forum.  My name is Luke. 

Very much new to stacking but have managed to impulse buy (and pay VAT) on a small amount of Gold and Silver when realising yesterday that we have people like Chris providing such a great service.

I am hoping to stack as an investment for the future and maybe release some if the prices are right.  I am hoping to place an order this weekend but not 100% sure if this will be the right place for me to do this.  Like most of us the saving in the VAT and shipping is the particular attraction here.  Naturally, will be a little nervous ordering through a medium such as this for the first time so any comforting words would be most welcome.

Thanks again and hope we all have a prosperous journey.

Hi Kritika,

Thanks for the message.  Apologies, didnt make clear it was just the silver I was charged VAT on.  thanks for the observation and questioning of it.

Welcome to the PM addiction.
You are not alone in paying VAT for your first silver.
Many of us have done this before discovering the alternatives, greatly assisted by articles and reviews on this forum so in a way you are lucky you have discovered us so soon.

I have placed many orders through this forum for PMs and had 100% trouble-free great service and have no hesitation in recommending fellow members with a perfect feedback score.

Greetings Luke

I paid VAT on my first silver purchase as well - twenty Double Eights and ten quarter ounce coins from Guernsey. Its a steep learning curve but you're in the right place to figure it out fast.

Just received my first coin bought through the forum today - no problems at all, and I couldn't have got a better price on it either.

Tis also my first dip into the group order, have ordered from Estonia independently before but doing it as part of the group is saving me time, hassle and cash and I have no reservations about it whatsoever.

Welcome aboard the "shiney" train! 😊 Luke 

As to comforting words - I think you are in one of the "BEST" places - with a truly respected member as @BackyardBullion who has done plenty of these "group orders"

and has made more than enough people happy through this!

Thank you all for the messages.

A question.  Besides having a portfolio of collection side of it, in terms of investment, what attraction would there be stack silver or gold in fact which would not be exempt from CGT?  The way I am thinking at the moment is to only collect coins which are exempt from CGT, unless someone can convince me otherwise.

A response would be much appreciated.

Regards
