Mr. Niall Cody:

I was going to explain how the flat-rate system works, but then the Deputy probably knows how it works as well as I do. Basically, the flat-rate system works by an addition of a percentage to the price paid by the registered purchaser, which is 5.8%. So, if an unregistered farmer sells his cattle, he gets an additional 5.8% on the price. What that is meant to do is to compensate the farmer for the VAT on the inputs-----
