    • @Chrisplym In no way is the following formal advice, just what I went through.  You are spot on that if you TURNOVER more than £85,000 in any rolling 12 month period then you must register for VAT. This is rolling remember, not a particular tax year or accounting year.  You calculate your VATABLE turnover only for this calculation. The tricky bit is working out what is VATABLE.  A common misconception is that sales made to customers outside the EU (where there is 0% VAT) is not counted. This is not the case. There are three main categories for VAT: 1) Vat is applied at either standard, reduced or zero rate (20%, 5% or 0%) These are all VATABLE and count towards your threshold.  - Example is basically anything you sell. Even a US customer that pays 0% - that counts for your VAT threshold as it is Zero Rated rather than exempt 2) Exempt from VAT all together - NOT VATABLE - Example is investment gold. There are some criteria that are needed to meet this but it is entirely possible to turnover millions of pounds and not have to bother registering because all of your sales are EXEMPT from VAT. If you did this kind of high volume I would imagine HMRC would get in touch and ask for proof you are trading in exempt goods, but it is not a requirement to register 3) Outside the scope of VAT - NOT VATABLE - Example is if you have goods outside the EU and they are drop shipped to customers. So, if you had a warehouse in the USA and you had customers buying items that were already in the USA and someone sent them out on your behalf then this is just outside the scope of VAT. Tot up all your VATABLE sales and if they total more than £85,000 you need to register.  Hope that helps! BYB
    • This 100% - PM to me is a long term money store / savings plan / pension / hobby. I don't treat it as hedge against currency in the current turbulent and uncertain market, as I’ve got no plan of selling down anytime soon regardless of what happens, but it is that too should I need to to sell for some unexpected reason. Its never going to ‘multi-bag’ in a few months (Or days) like some shares do but then it isn’t going to be struck off and wiped out where everything is lost. PM is lower risk, lower (financial) reward - less of of gamble, lower adrenaline rush and no sleepless nights waiting on a 7am RNS (still some risk depending relative to your point of view and position) its the enjoyable part of a balanced portfolio to me, a lot more than just numbers flickering on a screen and keeps my attention away from my shares account and stops impatient tinkering which has always cost me. it could drop to £900/oz again in the medium term or it could it hit £2000/oz, whats that, about a 35% swing on today - day traders play with those sort of numbers on the stock market across a few days or less.  If really unsure you could divide your money by 6 (for example) and invest 1/6th every month for the next half year and average out, or not 🙂 Best of luck 👍
    • The cheapest bullion dealer I have found https://auragentum.de/ sell newly minted 1 oz Gold coins for 2.7% above spot but to get those prices you have spend one million euros per year . The 2nd cheapest I have found is the European Mint purchased for 3% above spot provided buy a full tube (10 oz Gold) at a time. Gold is universally reconsigned and accepted why restrict yourself to purchasing from UK dealers? Many dealers in Europe and USA and sometimes they have special deals on their websites. Don't be afraid phone UK/Europe/USA dealers and ask them to price match another dealer in UK/Europe/USA. Don't forget premium members also get added benefit of accessing Gold Compare section for US/UK dealers.  
    • This diversity coin design is just about as well thought out as the political movement pushing behind it.  Definitely not something I would be interested in.
