VAT up to 20% from January 4th, 2011

For those products that are currently at the 'standard rate' of VAT retail prices have, in most cases, had to rise from 4th January, 2011. 

The good news, is that this does NOT include printed music (which is 'Zero rated'), but unfortunately, it does impact on accessories (e.g. strings, reeds, manuscript books), musical instruments, CDs and DVDs for example.
