Group 1 of Schedule 8 to the VAT Act seems to be pretty unambiguous on this point.

Section 2 of VAT Notice number 709/1 is equally unambiguous

Zero rated - unless there's some key point you've omitted.

No different to buying a ready meal from Asda.

From what you say, I can't imagine it would fall into one of the exceptions from zero rating. But feel free to say more.

You can buy a dozen ready meals from Asda.

Doesn't make them a caterer.

Wait! Where's the OP's bit about preparing the meals to order gone?

That is exactly what happened in the Marks and Spencer's case. Cold buffet food supplied to order by M&S was treated as a supply of catering. Admittedly there's been some additional case law since then.

Why has the OP edited their last post, and baggered off, thinking they've been given the right answer when they probably haven't?

How are these ready meals delivered? What are they in? What does the end user have to do to them before serving apart, from heating? Who supplies the cutlery, etc?

Actually, YTAF has the OP not only edited their post where they said that the meals were made to order, but also edited the OP itself.

Some of the useless wanchors that come on this site deserve exactly what they fuching deserve. Useless fuching advice, based on a useless fuching question, that then gets deleted, so nobody benefits.

The question was certainly a lot more comprehensive an hour ago.

This is annoying.
I'm wondering if regular contributors should always quote the whole question / previous post in their replies?
