Frequently Asked Questions

When is a flyer subject to VAT?

Most flyers are zero VAT with a few exceptions. The following flyers are subject to VAT

If the flyer is intended to be kept i.e. it has a calendar on it which means it is designed to be kept for 12 months.

If the flyer is to be presented to obtain the offer stated i.e. Please present this voucher to obtain your special offer price

If the flyer has a tear off section which is 25% or more the size of the flyer. If you have an A5 Flyer and a quarter of it is a money off coupon this is subject to VAT.

If the flyer has a section to be filled in with details again this is subject to 25% or more of the size of the page

This also applies to Brochures being subject to VAT i.e. if it has tear out portions, forms that have to be filled in. This again only applies if the amount is equal or over 25% of the brochure. For example if 4 pages of 12pp booklet are are tear out vouchers, this would be subject to VAT as it is 33% of the booklet

How to I calculate size of spine on Perfect Bound Booklet?

There a two formulas for this as a guide to measuring the size of the spine

Coated Material: the weight of the paper x the amount of sheets ÷ 1000

For example; 130gsm x 150 sheets (300pp) ÷ 1000

130 x 150 = 19500 ÷ 1000 = 19.5mm spine

Uncoated Material: the weight of the paper x the amount of sheets ÷ 750

For example; 100gsm white bond x 150 sheets (300pp) ÷ 750

100 x 150 = 15000 ÷ 750 = 20mm spine
