Increase in VAT from 17.5% to 20%

See below for a message from Call2call regarding the effect of the increase in VAT on our callthrough access rates from BT landlines. Note that for our own Call2call access numbers, XXXX should be replaced by 0137.

It appears that many of the Callthrough companies in our database have not yet implemented these changes, and so you should treat any callthrough rates shown as 15p, 20p, 25p etc. with suspicion. We may have to modify our software to automatically correct these rates if the callthrough companies do not fix this themselves.

You may find it useful to look at BT's pricing information online. In particular (when last checked) the current prices of calls to the specialized numbers used by call-through companies (typically beginning with 08 or 09) are available in the pdf document The price of calls to Specialised Numbers from BT Fixed Lines

Please note that due to the increase in the VAT rate to 20%, that became effective on the 4th January, the advertised rate of some of the access numbers has to change. (Please refer to the help note from the regulator that details these changes that can be found here http://phonepayplus.newsweaver.co.uk/qqy3dnnt06f16xbj26bm9e?email=true).

The 15p 0911 552 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 15.3p numbers.
The 20p 0911 225 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 20.4p numbers.
The 25p 0911 148 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 25.5p numbers.
The 30p 0911 235 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 30.6p numbers.
The 35p 0911 157 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 35.7p numbers.
The 40p 0911 245 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 40.9p numbers.
The 45p 0911 257 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 46p numbers.
The 50p 0911 167 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 51.1p numbers.
The 60p 0911 176 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 61.3p numbers.
The 75p 0911 180 XXXX number range must now be advertised as 76.6p numbers.

The prompts for these number ranges have been changed to reflect this price change.
