that if I want to buy a VC this year I need to acquire it in March before the naughty accountants at VC push up the prices in the UK 20-30%?

Bad accountants, dirty accountants - get on the naughty spot.

My understanding....

here in the US, is that the price increase will be in effect beginning April 1, and the expected increase is 7%-12% across the range. The price increase will be global in nature, but the percentage for each market will probably differ in relation to cross rates against the CHF. Going forward, the price will be the same for each reference regardless of the gold alloy. When I was a more frequent  buyer I often tried to beat the price increases. Bill

It is not the VC people who are to blame.... rather the falling US$. The US peso is not what it used to be...infact world dictators are falling all over the world - they were a big holder of US notes! I imagine that the great leader (sic) - George W. Bush - is to blame for failing to watch the financial vandals in America!
I have heard that some brand boutiques in the US now give the
