explain vat refunds

by junkone

what part of the vat are refundable?
we ate lunch at burger king and i saw vat on it. should i save all my receipts to claim refunds

Re: explain vat refunds

by TheLongTone

If you are registered as a VAT payer you can reclaim VAT you have paid on your business outgoings. Basically, you can probably bin them.

Re: explain vat refunds

by Kathrin_E

VAT is only refundable for goods you buy and take out of the country if the price is above a certain limit. However, on the other hand you may have to pay customs for these goods when entering your home country.

For services, food etc. there is no VAT refund.

Visitors to UK from outside the European union purchasing certain goods that they will be taking home with them and using a retailer who is knowledgeable about the The Retail Export Scheme can obtain a form in order to reclaim the VAT paid.
Obviously rules and regs apply but I am sorry to say that you cannot reclaim VAT on your Burger King meal.
More information about this Retail Export Scheme se:

Travel Tips for London

Hyde Park

by d_d

Hyde park is a very nice place.
Maybe this tip should stay in must see activities section but when I was in London Hyde park was my relaxing corner.
If you want to relax, take the tube and go there and stay in the sun lying on a deckchair (a nice man will ask you 1 £ for the chair), looking the local people skating, jogging, playing guitar, studying...
You can do whatever you want in a peaceful place.

Flags on the Mall

by easyoar

Every now and then, the flags are put up in the Mall. The Mall is the road that leads from Trafalgar Square all the way up to Buckingham Palace.

This time the flags were flying to help promote London's Olypic Bid for 2012. The Mall had been closed off to traffic and was full of pedestrians.

The Mall looks so much better when the flags are up, and closing the road to cars also helps (this is NOT typical).

The flags you can see here alternate between the Union Jack (the red, white and blue flag that symbolises Great Britain and Northern Ireland) and London Olympic Games 2012 Support the Bid flags. As part of the bidding process, it is important to show how committed the local city is to hosting the games, and London seems to be going out of her way to look interested!

Westminster Abbey

by kris-t

The Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster (Westminster Abbey), a mainly Gothic church, on the scale of a cathedral, in London is the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English monarchs.

Westminster Abbey also is the crowning and burial place of British monarchs. It has its world famed Poet’s Corner with memorials to Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, the Bronte’s sisters, Tennyson, Longfellow, Wordsworth, Burns, Dickens, Thackeray, Hardy, Kipling and other leading writers. Only a few however, are actually buried there.
Here too is that touching symbol of a nation’s grief, The Grave of the Unknown Warrior. According to legend, the Abbey was founded in the time of King Saberht of Essex, when a fisherman saw a vision of St. Peter. It was built on a then-island in the River Thames called Thorney Island. It was rebuilt by Edward the Confessor between 1045 and 1065 in the Norman style. Edward had vowed to go on pilgrimage, but had failed to keep his promise. The Pope suggested he redeem himself by building an Abbey.

Mind your own business

by Zarasher

It is customary for people to just go about their business, without speaking and smiling to random strangers that one might come accross. If you are a manic grinner and feel the need to smile and greet everyone when you get on a tube, be prepared to be treated like a nutter. That may mean recoiling, diverted eyes, nervousness, snickers etc.

Norwegian Wood in Trafalgar Square

by Mariajoy

Each year since 1947 Norway has given a Norwegian Spruce Christmas tree to the UK. There's more info about this on the website. It does look very pretty and will remain in Trafalgar Square until 6th January.
