    If anyone is considering upgrading or new garage equipment then Machine Mart have VAT free this weekend.
    Just treated myself to a new Clarke MIG welder saving £50. Sold my old SIP gasless MIG and old Draper arc welder on fleabay a few weeks back and been waiting for this opportunity. Anyone needs me I will be in the garage :-)

    I'll be slightly annoying and say there's no such thing as a VAT free offer, as consumers we have to pay VAT, what they mean is they've reduced their prices to an amount that when VAT is added it's the old pre VAT price... then I'm sure you all know that!

    The up side for us self employed is that we can buy at the reduced price and still claim the VAT back!

    Thanks David, that knocked the edge off it, I thought I had a bargain there. Not really I did know that as in the invoice, VAT is still applied. Got £50 off anyway.
