BusinessMan reported on the 17th March that the loophole that allows businesses in the Channel Islands to sell items valued under £18 VAT free, and therefore cheaper than businesses on the mainland can achieve, may well end soon.

What does this mean? Not very much if you're a business trying to compete with another located in the Channel Islands.
