Hotel and Training Course prices - the effect of the VAT rise on 4th January 2011

Our training course rates for 2011 will remain (net) unaltered from 2010 - although the VAT increase from 17.5% to 20% means that invoice totals will rise slightly. Most of our customers can reclaim VAT. Hotel rates - quoted inclusive of VAT - rise slightly to reflect the extra tax - £85.00 double room as single occupancy, £95.00 double room / double occupancy, and £72.00 delegate rate. All rates include superior continental breakfast.

We are ... doubtful ... as to whether British commerce and industry as a whole will simply amend their prices to reflect the new VAT rate, or whether a whole lot of them will take advantage of the need to change prices to sneak in a rise in the next (pre-tax) price too, leading to inflationary pressures. So our formal quotation pages will only tell you that our new prices are valid for bookings confirmed by 31st March. I really hope that I can extend them at that point to June, September and then the end of the year, but at this point there is an unpredictability, and no need to make a decision we could regret.




It's at times like this that I'm really thankful that our website is largely parametrized, and that I've been able to make the changes in just a few placed to have the show up all through the sites. You should find prices correct and consistent for 2011 across the board at our main sites ...

Well House Consultants, Company Details - [here]
Well House Consultants, staff reference page - [here] - we see more detail when logged in!

As always, the "devil is in the detail", and there is talk of prices in our Wiki, and I have mentioned them quite often in the blog. So I've ended up taking much longer that the work above took in order to make sure that people don't get old prices offered to them appearing to be current, while at the same time maintaining the archive nature of many of the blog articles - and that required individual updates at times!

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
