Exact science rarely emerges during times of febrile political discourse such as that currently revolving around the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. Woody Allen once wrote of a man named C.N. Jerome, a psychic, who claimed he could guess any card being thought of … by a squirrel. W. Allen, The Insanity Defense (Random House, 2007), 126. Jerome may equally have professed to divine the outcome for UK VAT policy in the not-too-distant future (namely, 11 pm on 29 March 2019). Owing to this uncertainty and the possibility of up-to-date authorship becoming outdated by the time of publication, the authors have strived to cover certain topics in relation to VAT policy and Brexit with a caveated generality and occasional, hesitant prediction.
