Tip of the Day #12 (Hard coded values)

Don’t hard code VAT or other values that can change, even if they don’t change all that often. Additionally, if you really must hard coded values in a program then make it a named constant rather than a literal value so that it can be tracked down by name. That will make it easier on the person having to maintain the program.
