Mail order company facing VAT backlash

Customers threaten to stop using mail order company

The Jersey Post has launched a campaign on behalf of consumers
targeted at the Littlewoods Shop Direct group, the mail order company, after it
told customers it would start adding 17.5% VAT in September.

The local paper claims it has received more than 150 emails from customers
saying they will no longer shop with Littlewoods unless it backs down.

Mail order companies that operate in Jersey have up until now recognised the
Jersey postcode and deleted the relevant UK government tax.

But Littlewoods claimed the reason for the new VAT policy was to align their
tax policy with that of the mainland.
