Is there VAT charged on helmets in the UK and Northern Ireland now? I know they used to be VAT zero as they were a Safety Device. The suppliers up North and Demon Tweeks are all charging VAT now? :starwars:
same as down south, what i'm saying is that helmets used to be zero rated for VAT in the North and 21% in the South, it seems to have been changed on the sly.Originally posted by alan_k
i dont think you get charged the vat up the north as long as you can show them a vat number :detective:

Helmets are changing next year- the red BSI sticker wont be worth a fuck- the new snell sticker is meant to be the new job- scrutineers are being told by M.I not to tell anyone yet though? dunno why?

I wonder will this label be recognised by British MSA Scrutineers or will Irish competitors have to buy an MSA sticker when they go across the pondOriginally posted by fatboymotorsport
just found this on the latest mi bulletin
"The introduction of annual
Motorsport Ireland Helmet Approval
Stickers for competitors resident in
the Republic of Ireland has been
agreed with immediate effect.
However, it will not be compulsory
to have such stickers applied to helmets
until 1 January 2007.
As an option, Approved stickers will
be available from scrutineers at
Motorsport Ireland events from 1
May for 2006 and will cost €2 each.
Examinations of helmets bearing
the sticker will be carried out much
faster. Rather than examining every
helmet bearing the Approved sticker,
Scrutineers will carry out more
detailed random checks.
Competitors are reminded that it is
their own responsibility to ensure
that their helmet is suitable at all
times for the purpose intended and
that it complies with the appropriate
HELMET APPROVAL STICKERS"
