VAT shoot

02 March 2006
Issue: 4047 / Categories: Forum & Feedback

A commercial shoot has corporate customers who pay for a '250-bird day' at £25 per bird plus VAT. With a 10% leeway, 275 birds can be taken for the same price. If the client wants more, the further number will be decided and a charge negotiated. The charge includes refreshments and beaters. 'Guest days' are free to invited customers to promote the business and cultivate custom, although guests may include some regular paying customers. Syndicate members are personal friends who, from the start, have paid the suppliers direct for all the pheasant chicks and bird food supplied to the shoot.
