Hi Martin

Well I was gobb-smacked, and believe me when I tell you that doesn't happen
to me very often! (smile).  I bought an iPad and got the VAT knocked off it.

I must say that they were very clued up about VoiceOver in there, and
apparently hold an accessibility workshop every fourth Sunday.  I don't know
how this VAT exemption aspect works online, but I would recommend people ask
before they buy.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Blimey, I wish I knew this a year ago when I bought my IPad.

Cheers
Martin
