    Not at all. VAT is payable these days on prepared food where ever you eat it. They are asking so as to know how to wrap it.

    This says different: https://www.accountsandlegal.co.uk/tax-advice/vat-in-the-food-industry

    "All food which is consumed where it is served, whether it be cooked, uncooked, hot or cold, is subject to standard rate VAT charges. All food which is taken away is subject to zero-rate VAT charges, unless, it is cooked and served immediately."

    VAT is chargeable only on certain types of food and the VAT treatment may, indeed, in certain circumstances depend on whether it is regarded as takeaway or sitting-in food.
