This is a brand new 500g Silver bar, produced by popular refiner Argor Hereaus. The bar is made to a cast finish with 999.9 purity fine silver. This provides classic rough edge finish most commonly associated with bullion, rather than the straight lines of a minted bar. Argor-Heraeus is part of the Hereaud Precious Metals Group, the largest global provider of services in the precious metal industry. As such, you can rest assured that this bar is of the utmost quality desirability. Fabricated on behalf of the Republic of Fiji, the silver bar boasts a face value of 5 Fijian Dollars.
This silver bullion is special because of its unique face value. Most silver bars don’t have a face value, and so VAT of 20% is charged on top of their purchase price. However, with our careful sourcing triggering an EU tax treaty, and the pre-requisite of a face value being satisfied, this hybrid bar can be bought without incurring the VAT charge. Finally, silver investors seeking bullion delivered to their door, are able to achieve this VAT-free.
This is an ingenious solution for silver investors. The desire to purchase silver bullion VAT-Free has existed for years now, and now its possible with this bar. The 500g Silver bars provide a high degree of liquidity due to their modest size and standardised format. Depending on the total amount you’re looking to invest, it may be worth combining these bars with the larger ones we offer in the same VAT-Free series to average your cost per kilo down (Better prices per kilo come with larger bars). Those include the 1kg silver bar and the huge 5kg silver bar. If Capital Gains Tax is a consideration, then it’s definitely worth contemplating adding UK Silver coins to the mix. Buying Silver Britannias adds further divisibility to your portfolio, as each coin weighs a mere 1oz, and as UK legal, any profits on these coins are free from CGT.
