Wirral Council spent £284,925 on 6 tractors, £168,474.83 on solar panels and £115,394.72 on Jack and the Beanstalk
As it’ll be Christmas Eve tomorrow, I thought at least one Christmas related invoice would be a good idea. So below is an invoice for £115,394.72 for a production of Jack and the Beanstalk at the Floral Pavilion. Wirral Council of course will have made something from sales of programmes and tickets.
In case there are those who don’t remember what the story of Jack and the Beanstalk is about, it’s a story about Jack taking the cow to market to be sold. He accepts magic beans in exchange for the cow, his mother is furious, throws the beans to the ground and sends Jack to bed. In the end Jack steals from the giant, kills the giant and he and his mother live happily ever after.
However here in the invoice:
And when the giant looks down from his castle in the sky, he might see some of Wirral Council’s new solar panels. Foz Contract Services Limited sent in an invoice earlier this year to Surjit Tour for £108,638.51. This is only part of the amount to be paid however, the grand total comes to £168,474.83.
On the bright side (geddit, bright side?) Wirral Council can claim back the VAT of £28,079.14. Here you go with that invoice:
And just to round it off, here’s a Wirral Council invoice for an order for 6 tractors from Turner Landscape (of a total of eight ordered). Each tractor cost £39,573 + VAT (total £47,487.60 each). However each tractor comes with an “instruction book”, radio, wheel & tyres, mirrors, an engine et cetera. The total for all six comes to £284,925.60 (including VAT) . Here are the invoices.
