ALLISTER AUGUSTIN | NOMURA
“I’ve got a quite a big family, and we have noticed an extra £15 or so on the shopping every week, although this is not entirely down to the VAT rise. The rise is one of many things that’s costing me.”

JOHN LAUDRUM | RFIB GROUP
“I have spent a bit less because of it. I don’t buy as many DVDs or treats. I think the government should lower the VAT and focus on helping companies to grow more and get more people into work.”

STEWART GABRIEL | ROCELA
“I have definitely noticed prices going up, but it’s a combination of things that make it more expensive. We are probably spending less, because of the wider context of the recession.”
