Summary of responses on 'heritage tax' published


HM Revenue and Customs published its Summary of Responses to the consultation on the 'heritage tax' - the Budget proposal to levy VAT on approved alterations to listed buildings.

The Heritage Alliance has been campaigning on this issue since March; we are going through the Government's response very carefully, and will publish a statement on our website shortly.

818 of the 1493 responses to the VAT consultation (which also included measures relating to sports drinks, hairdressers' chairs, etc) related to the 'heritage tax' - the highest number of responses across all the measures in the consultation.
