Campaign for a reduced rate of VAT on home repairs and improvements

Interested to see that this campaign resurfaced this week.

Main protagonists appear to be the Scottish Building Federation, Federation of Small Businesses and the Scottish Government.

I was though surprised to see no reference to the Isle of Man when this was being reported.  This was because the Isle of Man reached an agreement with HM Treasury last December to make permanent its 5% VAT rate on repairs or refurbishment of domestic property.

More information on this can be found here.   An article on this from the Scotsman can also be found here.
