December 22, 2010 12:00 ET Advises Consumers to Avoid the VAT Increase by Shopping Savvy

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 22, 2010) -, the only UK voucher website not to list expired vouchers or deals on its website, is advising shoppers to make as many purchases as they can during December as well as looking for VAT back offers to avoid the impending VAT increase at the beginning of next year.

From January, UK shoppers will find a VAT increase of 2.5% implemented, raising it from 17.5% to 20%. With many UK shoppers still feeling the effects of the recession, a further increase in costs may affect them dearly. However, through buying items before the VAT increase where possible, savvy shoppers may find themselves saving a considerable amount of money.

There are ways of beating the cost of VAT altogether and Savoo have a number of VAT-beating vouchers that are accessible through the website. Through Littlewoods and Sainsbury's, for example, shoppers can access a deal to earn their VAT back on all Sony products bought through each online store. Shoppers can also beat the VAT-increase with Very discount codes from Savoo, whereby shoppers can order furniture and have delivery guaranteed before Christmas. With shoppers currently receiving a 17.5% return on these items, they can save a large amount of money.

Simon Bird, Retail Partnerships Director at Savoo, says: "Although the VAT increase in January is likely to affect many people, savvy shoppers can do their best to avoid increased costs while they have the chance during December. With many stores and high street chains likely to introduce further discounts and deals in the immediate days after Christmas, this is the perfect opportunity for shoppers to save a great deal of money."

However, if shoppers are unable to buy many of the products they'd like to before the 2011 VAT increase, Savoo has a host of vouchers throughout the year across a huge range of products. Savvy shoppers can still save a substantial amount of money which will help to counter the extra 2.5% VAT."
