As everyone will be aware, on the 1st of January VAT will go back up to 17.5%.

To me this won’t make a slight bit of difference, just as it didn’t make the slightest bit of difference when it was reduced. Double glazing firms don’t have to panic about the loss of business because an increase of £25 per £1000 is negligible enough for customers not to worry about it.

What will be a worry is if the government starts to hint at raising the VAT to try and gain some of their lost revenue back, that I think would be the point in which we should be raising some concern.
