    There are several ways of reading 14.99 aloud.

    Fourteen pounds and ninety-nine pence
    Fourteen pounds, ninety-nine pence
    Fourteen pounds, ninety-nine
    Fourteen ninety-nine

    For 14.09:

    Fourteen pounds and nine pence
    Fourteen pounds and nine.
    Fourteen oh nine.

    We never say "point".

    My final suggestion in each list is probably the one you will hear most often in shops or from people just talking generally.

    Re: British money

    Note that emsr2d2 wrote the figures as '14.99'. There is no space after the '' sign.
