  4. Flat rate VAT - anyone dropped out of it now?

    I guess most accountants are saying, nah, stay in there's little to be gained. But they would say that I guess because there's more work involved for them. So what has everyone done? Personally, money is money lol. When you're getting 73 a week at times it makes a difference!
