Reduced VAT Freeze with UK Car Discount

Published Date: 3rd Dec 2009

All customers have to do in order to secure their new car is to make a minimum £500 deposit on any manufacturer car and the rest of the price is subject to the 2009 VAT rate of 15% - saving several hundreds of pounds in VAT charges on a new car

On January 1st 2010 the VAT rate increases back to 17.5%, giving an effective price rise of nearly two pence on every pound spent. When buying a new car, this can quickly add up to several hundred pounds.

However, if customers are considering buying a new car, they should look no further than UK Car Discount, the country's leading online car dealers for some great offers on new cars, especially if considering ordering a new car with the new 2010 registration.

If customers order and make a deposit on a new car this year, they can pay the balance later, they can enjoy the lower VAT rate of 15%. On a £20,000 car, this can mean as much as saving nearly £400; some examples of the savings orders taken before the 30th Dec VAT guaranteed at 15% available on cheap, new cars from UK Car Discount are:
