Congratulations British Government…software collapse starts MONDAY!

Ok Some advice.

If you have written software where the VAT is hard coded for the UK market. Monday your software will stop working, they have reduced the VAT rate to 15%.

This could potentially be worse than the year 2000 thing that never really happened.

Note to self: Always get variable things like tax and vat from tables, even if they have not changed for hundreds of years.

Ah well 24 hour days coming now.
