SIR - Believe it or not I was just getting some old newspaper to put my potato peelings in for recycling and happened to notice an article in The Last Word section on 'long-term cost of VAT cuts' dated January 15.

I just thought I would point out that before the VAT cut, the postage for company VAT returns and payments was paid. Now, we have to affix a stamp. It might not sound much but how much do you think they are saving/probably making from that? All VAT registered companies have to make quarterly returns. No doubt they will fail to mention this when they decide to make tax rises etc.
