    everyone pays VAT in the UK - right? It is odd to see a price in the plus VAT format though...

    Well the original page comes across as the price including the VAT, then the checkout comes and it gives a VAT again? It's probably just worded wrongly, but I won't be renewing until I know for sure.

    perhaps they are using a new cart system (one that is primarily setup for B2B instead of B2C sales).

    the outcome should be the same for you though.

    i don't have a UK license to check, but the new license showed VAT inclusive price but when I added it to the cart it went to price+vat. Switching the price display method is not a good idea, but the end result was the same price.

    We show that the price is £23.78 PLUS Vat not INC Vat, the checkout price is correct with the right amount of VAT added.

    Its done to show the user that VAT needs to be added.

    That's not the impression I get. "PLUS" VAT seems to indicate the current price is including VAT. When I browse such website the price is usually listed as:

    £X.XX excluding VAT
    £X.XX including VAT

    I will arrange to make it clearer, I have always seen Plus to mean it needs including and INC to mean it is included?

    By the way, here in Slovakia "+ DPH" has always meant "without VAT" :)

    I've actually never seen "plus". Websites strictly tend to use the words "include" and "exclude".

    I also sent you a PM about another issue.
