Yes that was the one with the coaster Very Happy

Although Dylan Moran has spoken again else where about Catholics, Protestants and Biscuits... Hope this one is not blocked We are not worthy!

A court ruled that the product should be considered a cake, meaning that VAT isn't paid on the product in the UK.


That means that there is different VAT for cakes and biscuits in the UK? Very Happy

Sort of.
If I understand right, there is no VAT on plain biscuits. But if they have a chocolate coating on them, they are considered a luxury & are subject to VAT.
Not so with cakes.

Summarized is,
- Biscuits with Chocolate cover = VAT for luxurious products
- Cakes with Chocolate cover = no VAT considered as basic need

I believe the MP's vote for this law were Biscuits haters Mr. Green

Laughing
It's quite controversial really. Teacakes were another one that got re-classified as biscuits & the taxman collected millions in revenue before a court re-classified them as cakes again & ordered the taxman to pay back the revenue (or some of it anyway).
Seems the baked goods business is a legal minefield

STOP PRESS: In a triumph for the Common Man against the numberless nameless faceless forces of corporate fascism, my local supermarket has inaugurated a "British Foods" section, wherein one can procure (among other things) Bounty bars (both plain and milk varieties), Mars Bars, proper baked beans, Ribena (assuming you can get a second mortgage), and joy of joys, Chocolate Digestives! Oh Happy Day! I spent the weekend in an orgy of Earl Grey tea (from a tea-pot, no less!) and dunking my way to Type II diabetes.

The huge Tesco in the next town does that here. I am almost at peak Mini-Cheddar Surprised
But I have been able to score Rich Tea biccies too & commit high heresy dunking them in coffee just to be contrary Smile

Well, some of you may be pleased to learn that finally there has been some resolution to the Niece/Nice debate.

It would appear said biscuits have actually been renamed !
