FAQ Jul 29, 2004

Why do you charge VAT?
It's compulsory for any service purchased and used in the UK. The UK rate is 17.5%

Who pays VAT?
All participants based in the EU, including the UK, if they are not VAT registered.
For business registered for VAT, this is not a cost, as they will be able to claim it back.
Other users are considered as final consumers and cannot claim back VAT, but they can still claim all costs, or most of them, as business expenses.

Who doesn't pay VAT?
Any business registered for VAT and any business or individual not based in the EU.
For example, the participants coming from the US, Canada, etc. do not pay VAT.

Oxford has an excellent, well-established park & ride system to protect this ancient seat of learning from modern day traffic. And there's a direct bus from Stansted to Oxford:

National Express 757
Linking Stansted Airport, Hemel Hempstead, High Wycombe and Oxford every two hours.
