more on VAT changes

I wrote earlier about the changes made in the Budget to VAT on alterations to listed buildings.

Madeleine Davies writes about this in the Church Times: VAT change throws spanner into works at listed churches. The Church Times has also published an editorial: Another raid on church finances.

Other press reports during the last week include these.

Philip Johnston in the Telegraph George Osborne puts the fabric of Britain at risk with the ‘heritage tax’

Nicholas Cecil and Joe Murphy in the London Evening Standard Bishops revolt over Osborneā€™s VAT on church improvements
