Corgi Vatsaver

Corgi Vatsaver

Didn't find your answer?

I've been given a letter which has been sent to my client who's a plumber; it's from CorgiVatSaver claiming that they can make substantail VAT savings on  boiler installation for a percentage of the savings made.

As far as I'm aware you can only charge VAT at the reduced rate on the installation of electronic timers, theomostats, mechanical or electronic valves. When fitting a heating system I understand that the fitting of these engery efficient materials are an incidental part of the whole installation and would therefore be charged at the standard rate of VAT.

I have found some comments on the internet regarding the Vat optimiser which seems to have been offered by the same people and understand from these comments that they are trying to seperate the installation into  standard rated supplies and the reduced rated supplies to claim the reduced rate VAT, but this is being desputed by HMRC and can put plumbers at risk of having to pay the VAT back.

Has anyone out there had any dealings with this? I would appreciate any comments.

Thank you

Google it

Google the business name or the offer name, if it's a scam you will find plenty of complaining entries! 

 

Corgi themselves don't exist any more do they, it's something else now

 

There is a boiler scrappage scheme, I think it's £400 off a new boiler providing your current one is actually working and was installed before 1998 and you don't have to be elderly to get that one!

I have just been contacted by a client reference this scheme.  After doing some research I would refer you to VAT Notive 708/6 paragraph 2.3.3.

I have advised my client to give this scheme a wide berth.

Just heard on the grapevine that this is finally going to court so expect an answer 1way or the other in the next month or so. Personally have no doubt that Corgi are onto a winner here and all those who didn't jump at the chance to sign up may well regret this when they here of the payouts concerned.
