    Hi GT,

    Many thanks for your advice. I'll email Mal and see what happens.

    Hi Don,

    My accountant has done some serious research on this and it isn't that simple as Alan says. There are definitely circumstances where you should not charge VAT on shipping.

    I tested this on Amazon and if you order just a book, they charge 2.99 postage with no VAT. If you add a DVD to your order, the final summary says that postage is now 2.99 including 0.50 VAT.
