    VAT being charged twice for car repair? 27th Jul 12 at 3:20 PM
    ..I've posted this as a reply to an old thread so I'm starting a new one here to be sure of a response.
    'I've just picked up my car from a service, MOT and crash repair. It was a large bill and so I am going over it with a fine toothcomb. In the 'parts' section of the invoice all parts are quoted with VAT paid, i.e. the cost of the part of which 20% is VAT, so this is an over the counter price and not a trade price. The sum total of all parts, in this case 476.00, goes over to form part of the net total and then on the net total figure, 762, VAT is added to create a gross at 910 approx.
    I've rung the garage, who I have used before, and they say everything is in order and that's the way things are charged these days.
    I am feeling a bit ripped off, any clues?
    Thanks Larry
