Value added tax (VAT)
Value Added Tax (VAT) is a Government tax. At present the standard VAT rate is 17,5%. Everyone in Britain must pay VAT on almost everything they buy. VAT is usually incorporated in the price.
Visitors to Britain can reclaim the tax when they leave Britain and present the appropriate documents issued by the shop. Usually when they buy rather expensive things like furs, gold, hi-fi goods etc., they should wonder if the shop operates the VAT scheme.
One day during their stay in London one of the participants went shopping and came into a small jeweleк's shop to buy a gold chain for his wife.
Here is his talk with the shop assistant:
Participant: Excuse me, may I have a look at one of the chains displayed in the window?
Shop assistant: Certainly, sir. What number is it?
Participant: It's nine three five, over there.
Shop assistant: Just a minute.... Yes, here you are.
Participant: And how long is it?
Shop assistant: 25 inches, sir.
Participant: And how much is it in centimeters?
Shop assistant: Let me see... oh, here is the calculator... I should multiply it by two point five two. Oh, yes, sixty three.
Participant: Very good. Just the length I wanted to have. And how much is it?
Shop assistant: One hundкed and ninety nine pounds.
Participant: Good. I'm buying it.
Shop assistant: ... Here is your box and the receipt please.
Participant: Excuse me, may I reclaim the VAT tax?
Shop assistant: And where are you from?
Participant: From Russia.
Shop assistant: Just a minute, I'll consult the book. Yes, you are eligible to the reclaim. May I have your passport to fill in the form?
Participant: Here you are.
Shop assistant: Here is your passport and the form. Please fill in this sheet before you give it to the customs. How are you leaving? By plane?
Participant: Yes, by plane. And what should I do about this form?
Shop assistant: Fill in this sheet before you leave for the airport and have it stamped at the customs, at the airport. Then post it. In a month or so you will receive a cheque by post. Have it cashed at the bank stated, in Russia.
Participant: I see. Thank you very much.
Shop assistant: You are more than welcome.
