January 9, 2013 at 11:45 am #114505 Fuengi (Andrew)Participant ugh. Sorry if not clear. The only IVA rate that I know of that increased on the 1st of January was the IVA tax on new builds. It has increased from 4% to 10%. Any further talk of further tax increases is hearsay at the moment. EDIT: no red stuff (neither blood nor wine!), only a wireless keyboard that needed a change of batteries. January 9, 2013 at 2:40 pm #114507 AnonymousParticipant Thanks.
