Any consistently successful
stop smoking program will be in great demand and
will therefore be well above the VAT threshold. If
the therapist or company is not VAT registered, it is important
to ask why.
If a company has only just started trading
or only sees a few clients a year they
will not have reached the VAT threshold.
Do you want to see a therapist who is practicing part
time or who only sees a few clients every year? If
a therapist is successful they will be busy and therefore
have to be VAT registered.
Less successful therapists will be quiet, inexperienced
and charge less for their services. Choosing a cheaper
method is invariably false economy and it pays to choose
the best first time around. After all, you are hoping
only to stop smoking the once.
Furthermore, success rates are only meaningful if they
are based on large number of clients each year. If
a therapist only sees a handful of clients, any quoted success
rates are meaningless. Do you want to take that risk?
Some therapists may tell you they do not have to register
for VAT as the service they offer is 'medical'. However,
unless they are a GP, this is not the case and this shows
a dangerous lack of knowledge and training on their behalf.
