Quick Polls


Government has raised the VAT rate. How will this impact short term insurance policies?


There will be a lot of confusion. If a policy is written at 14% and subsequently cancelled (at 15%), how much is the refunded amount?
All will be ok. The industry has had time to prepare for the VAT increase.
Government has really not thought through what the unintended consequences of the increase would be.
