[quote:Anonymous Coward 32941130:MV8yMTIzMjY0XzM1ODI2MjA1X0M5NjMxOEE2] Brittania coins are sterling currency and therefore EXEMPT from CGT. Bear this in mind when buying bullion. Buying VAT free silver (from Guernsey or elsewhere) is an option. BUT Customs can open packages if they want and will add the tax to be paid by you. It's a (small) chance you take. Baird & Co. do some excellent deals. They are London based so will charge VAT on silver. [/quote]
I would like to get lots of advice, pro and con about buying gold.
I am in the UK but would welcome input from all.
Here is my situation.
I am mortgage and debt free.
Inflation has made me concentrate on buying in tinned and non perishable goods. I have several years supplies and have quite frankly run out of storage space.
I have bought clothing that will last me several years (eg prices for cheap trainers have doubled in 18 months) so i have several years in hand now.
I have cash in hand to deal with emergencies.
I garden and have good tools and several years of seed storage on hand.
It is the usual problem that you need to have many thousands of pounds before a savings account pays interest above our inflation rate.
I have an account but it pays 0.25% to savings below £5000 (thats why i stocked up on food that was increasing in price at a huge rate)
Would it be a good idea to start buying gold ?
(even in small amounts)
Does anyone have any reputable links for UK companies ?.
Do any of you people have alternative ideas for me ?
