Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the correct VAT treatment on the sale of Jaffa Cakes in one of the shops at an Anchor Hanover Group care village?

    • A.

      Exempt - it's a supply to people in care

    • B.

      Lower-rated (5%) - it's a fuel

    • C.

      Standard-rated (20%) - it's a biscuit

    • D.

      Zero-rated - it's a cake

    Correct Answer
    D. Zero-rated - it's a cake
    Explanation
    When the courts were determining this, they left a plate of cakes and biscuits out to see whether the Jaffa cake would go soft like a biscuit, or hard like a sponge cake.
    The result… the Jaffa cake went hard and was therefore defined as a cake for VAT purposes.
    Cakes are always zero rated regardless of whether they are topped with chocolate.
