Today's Dilemma: Cake or Biscuit?

Under UK law, VAT on cakes and biscuits is set at 0%. But if a biscuit is covered partially or wholly in chocolate, it will be taxed at a standard rate - 17.5%. :face_with_monocle:

McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes went to court to prove how they are a cake and not a biscuit!

What a delicious dilemma to be in! :yum:

No matter how much you love biscuits or cakes.

Taxes never dessert you.
