Have Pretty Much All Gold Coins Been Vat Free Since 2010

Recommended Posts

One good reason for investing in gold coins, is their TAX EXEMPT status. For a gold coin to be considered an investment and tax exempt, it has to be listed on HM Revenue & Customs list of Investment Gold - referred to as Notice 701/21a. The list is quite extensive, and not all gold coins appear on it, but it is fair to say that all the 'common' gold coins traded as investments are listed. From the perspective of it's exempt status, the coins physical appearance ie. bullion of Proof is not considered. For a full list of the coins included, please use the link below.

It's about the purity of the gold that determines if it is exempt or not.

Actually, it has been the case since March 2002.

What changed in 2010 was just the list of coins that qualify. That gets updated from time to time as new ones are introduced.
