Great time to be doing the final ducting work in the loft. Probably 50c in there at the moment....
This will have a re-circulating hob extractor, so no connection to MVHR. Is the location of the MVHR extract in the best location? Probably 1m from hob?
Should the extract be closer to the shower or more central in the room? I was going to go for position A.
Both rooms will have a 'boost' switch to cater for cooking/showering periods.
That's not how VAT works tho. B&Q or their upstream supplier will have paid UK VAT on the American paint when it arrived in the UK. From that point you are (for VAT purposes) buying UK paint. B&Q charge you UK vat as usual. They then reclaim the VAT they paid, and hand over the VAT they charged.
The government ends up with the tax on the difference between the price when it first arrived in the UK and the price you eventually paid. Unless you do a self-build reclaim in which case the government ends up with nothing.
All imported goods are charged VAT at the moment, almost always UK VAT. The only real exception is that EU companies exporting a small amount of goods to consumers also in the EU are allowed to charge VAT in their own country instead of registering for and charging VAT in the country it's going to.
Since 1985 the EU and China have had a deal.
EU-China Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
This has been upgraded to the
European Union Association Agreement and since 2007 is still being worked on as things change.
Who knows how, or where, the UK will fit into this if we have a no deal exit (I don't think we will).
