Chamber calls for level playing field for retailers

ISLAND retailers claim they are being hit by abuse by online shoppers of the £240 limit under which no GST is paid on internet and mail order purchases.
The president of the Jersey Chamber of Commerce, David Warr, said that it was time for a review of what is termed the ‘de minimus’ limit.
Mr Warr said that retailers believe that online shoppers are abusing the current system by making multiple purchases below £240 when they are actually buying a single item.
