Has anyone else noticed that the repair service says £64 (UK), but at no time tells you that you have to pay 20% VAT?
I went through and paid my £64 on credit card, then printed the receipt and saw £76.80.
I have looked in to this and this is illegal.
Has anyone else had this issue?
The trader may have committed a criminal offence if they give false or misleading information about a price for goods or services or if they don’t display a price where that is key for making a decision to buy. For example:
a sign that advertises reduced items with the words ‘Offer ends today’ but the offer is still on the next day
a restaurant menu that describes dishes on offer but does not include their prices.
If you have a query about a price you’ve been given and you think you may have been misled, complain to the trader and report them to trading standards.
