EU VAT – How Did The First Week Go? It’s Not Pretty…

#EUVAT: This really is grim reading 😦
At present my business is not directly affected because I don’t sell any digital goods / services (Or whatever the EU views them as !) But it does affect my future plans. And it is having a devastating affect on so many small businesses, including businesses owned by my friends.


More on #EUVAT – Hannah’s Bananas – a #VATMOSS analogy | Hannah Kate

Anyone who is still wondering why I keep talking about EU Vat and VAT Moss PLEASE spare a couple of minutes and read this post by Hannah Kate.  It is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!

Now my banana stall’s future looks bleak, and I can’t seem to get any answers from Mr Moss. Apparently, an apple stall from Green Street has been told the new laws don’t apply to them, and the man who sells strawberries on Red Street hasn’t heard anything at all. I think the cherry-seller on Blue Street has just buried her head in the sand and pretended this has nothing to do with her. I’m currently being bombarded by people offering to take people’s fingerprints for me (for a price), and the powers-that-be just won’t accept that banana stalls like mine actually exist.

Is there any future for my little stall?

It’s Not ‘All Ears’, It’s Action Too In The European Commission On EU VAT

New EU VAT laws will affect small businesses & their customers massively!
The EUVat Action group – – has been working tirelessly to find some solutions for small business owners like myself and I am VERY grateful. There is some progress and some positivity and it appears some people in the EU are listening. Hopefully they will act soon to stop many businesses form closing down or changing how they currently work.

Food Appeal for Rescue Dogs in Stamford Area

Do you shop at Sainsbury’s in Stamford?

Next time you are buying your weekly food supplies there could you possibly buy a bag of dog food and put it into this shopping trolley stationed at the store? sainsburys appeal 2This Food Appeal Basket is for Wansford based Dog Rescue Animal Helpine.

They rescue unwanted dogs and puppies, and re-home to new loving homes. Thousands of unwanted dogs, strays and pound dogs have found their way through the Homes 4 Dogs kennels during the 30 years they have been rescuing dogs. Two biggest costs any rescue / animal shelter faces are Vet Bills and Dog Food. Next time you shop for food for your furry family just one spare bag, even a small one, will be a big help to the dogs in rescue who totally rely on charity and goodwill of animal lovers for their survival. And even if you don’t have a dog, could you spare a few pounds to buy a bag of dog food for her?

006-1All my dogs in the UK have been adopted through this wonderful rescue run by Ros and her team of dedicated volunteers. This is the newest addition to our family, Manali. We adopted her 5 weeks ago. Isn’t she lovely? She had been at the rescue a while. They saved her, got her vet checked, micro-chipped, spayed and cared for her till she found us (or we found her). And of course Animal Helpline fed her!

Manali (was Bongo) is a big girl and she would have needed a fair amount of dog food daily, yes? As do all the dogs still in the rescue kennels. And that’s where your food donations help! The dog food you donate will go to feed the Dogs in Animal Helpline care as they wait for their forever homes.

Whatever you can spare will be gratefully received by the charity and will really help the poor homeless dogs in their care. Thank you!
