Taxes?

Hi, I'm a university student from Malaysia right now planning to transfer to the UK for my second year. I am planning to get a PC for my online classes and also some light gaming. I read up online that VAT may be exempted for educational purposes and since most classes are online right now, do I still have to pay the VAT?

I'm not a tax lawyer, and you should seek professional UK advice, but I suspect the chances of you being exempt from VAT on the purchase of a PC is pretty slim.

I believe it relates to the institutions themselves (and only those who don't take fees) rather than individual students so I don't believe you can no but you would need to check with PCS themselves to be sure.
