    Do you guys know if AV Sales ship to other EU member status, or only UK ?

    There's one thing which is very important - I have a company and normal intre-EU-community trade is done tax free. Thus if I buy something from Germany as a company - they're supposed to sell it to me tax free (TVA free) which is usually between 16 and 21% - so very important.

    I'm looking at the Panasonic TH-42PW7B - it's offered at 1439 pounds. If I click the REMOVE UK TAX check button, it takes it down to 1221 pounds.

    Now this 14,894% tax - is that the TVA tax ? Or is that some specific UK tax which is put on-top of the whatever % tva is ?

    How much (if anyone got an idea that is) would delivery be to Belgium ?

    Thanks all

    Hi

    UK VAT is 17.5% so by ticking the box, you are being given the price net of VAT. The -14.894% thing is a bizarre way of showing how they removed the tax element.

    The ex-vat prices are displayed adjacent to all the prices.

    You need to contact Av-Sales to discuss the international shipping.

    Thanks for the info mate.

    So they're not really removing the tva provided there's a 3% difference..

    I'll pm the contact you mention, thanks again.

    Cheers

    no..its maths!...14.894% of (base price + 17.5% vat) takes you back to base price.
    100+17.5% = 117.5
    117.5 *14.894% = 17.5

    Yes they are. I think a misunderstanding has arisen with the percentage calculation.

    Take the Panasonic TH-42PW7B Plasma Screen.

    £1434.90 Delivered
    £1221.90 ex.VAT

    Go through to the purchase page

    (-14.894% = £ -213.71)

    £1291.90 + 213.71 = £1435.61

    None of the prices add up quite right (I think the ex-vat price is incorrect!) but it doesn't amount to 3% - more like 0.01%

    Heh obviously, I think I should revise my 3rd grade math books ;)

    Great, so the PWD7 goes for like 1200 pounds + delivery. This is about 1730 euro for the SET + i suppose about 150 for delivery.

    By the way, any difference between the 42PW7B and the 42PW7DB ?

    It's 71p out so it can't be rounding. I think they've just tweaked the inc VAT price to make it look pretty and keep it below £1435 but failed to adjust the ex VAT price accordingly. (It should be £1221.19, not £1221.90!)

    Hi,

    AV have just sent me a set of AE Evo's to Hamburg. Took just 2 days although thte tansport cost was over 200 + VAT. There were no issues and with a few emails and calls everything was organised. Just in case you think I am mad paying this much I have saved over 200 compared to buying in Germany

    My budget was just raised up to 3200 euro (2200 pounds) for a plasma television ;)

    What's the best I could get in that range ? Lookat 50" but thats about 500 pounds more for the cheapest model ;) I suppose it's out of the league for now.

    Yes, it looks great and it's in the price range i can afford now, but it doesn't have a tuner / connector boxes (or whatever that is) is necessary.

    I'd like to just put the thing in the living and connect my DVD + TV Cable to it without too much hassle.

    Got both, problem is the DVD has 0 inputs ;)

    Otherwise my cable TV is a standard coaxial cable, and the satellite is a scart. DVD support component output / scart

    so you were going for the media box with the pw7? I expect that works also with phd7 (but don't know for sure) but ask alastair he'll tell you exatly what you need and can get for the money you have
