Okay everyone. The day has arrived. When you go out to buy something, your purchase will be subject to the new VAT rate. And that is now 18%..
The new rate even applies to price controlled items, so do not be shocked to see higher prices even on those items. You can be dismayed, but don't say I didn't warn you!
Here are some of the new rates for price controlled items, when the full list is published, I will update!
