Same here - Before Xmas I was offered 2.5 at £25 per 100m so long as I bought 5 x 100m at a time.

Last week I picked up a 50m roll for £23.+VAT

No way is this increase solely down to a 2.5% increase in VAT.

On the flip side I ran some copper into the scrappy and got a fortune for it. I paid about £38 plus vat for 2.5 a couple of weeks ago.

Surely the VAT is irrelevant when you're discussing prices net of VAT?

Am not sure of this, but I am guessing that somewhere down the distribution line, VAT and /r duty has been applied to other costs before the stuff gets to the wholesaler's counter - i.e. higher fuel costs etc.

I think you'll find some are VAT reg and some not and the ones that are might quote without VAT whilst the others include it. So it's best to state which when quoting just to avoid confusion. EG B & Q price includes VAT

This is more to do with copper prices and sterling/dollar rates.

I am seeing more British cable for that reason. All manufacturers foreign or domestic fix the price they pay for materials by buying an option to buy at a price at a future date; these contracts have to be re-arranged at some point.

It often seems t+e is sold without margin to attract custom. The scrap market is closely aligned to the spot market; I got £1.05 per kg for t+e last week.

It seems that the latest excuse is that Chile, being a major global source of copper, has recently had an earthquake which has disrupted production - at least this is what my wholesaler was peddling as an excuse this morning!
