Re: My vat high

Everyone pays 20% VAT its what the government has set VAT at.


VAT is set on products the government classes as a luxery and mobile phones etc is a luxury.

Re: My vat high

You are not being charged extra VAT but the normal due 20% VAT on top of items that are initially priced ex-VAT in the bill.


All consumer prices include VAT and every network charges VAT, but you may be confused by the way EE presents its bills. It itemises all items excluding VAT before totalling them up and adding VAT at the end.


The thing to look at is not the VAT but the ex-VAT monthly charge for your devices.
