more on VAT changes

I have written about this earlier here and here.

The Church of England reports on a VAT lobby on alterations held on 23 April.

Also on 23 April Tony Baldry MP, Second Church Estates Commissioner, answered two Written Questions in the House of Commons.

A Treasury minister was asked a question in the House of Lords on 24 April.

Madeleine Davies has reported in the Church Times that Oppose ‘alterations’ levy, Baldry urges.

George Parker writes in the Financial Times that Churches reprieved from new VAT charge (free registration required).
But David Ainsworth writes for Third Sector that Archbishops’ Council says compensation for listed churches won’t cover loss of VAT relief.

Tony Baldry asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer a question about VAT on improvements to listed buildings and received this written answer on 30 April.

This doesn’t just affect the Church of England. The Baptist Union of Great Britain has published this: VAT and listed buildings.

Aaron Morby writes for Construction Enquirer that Greens, builders and RIBA call to scrap listed building VAT.

The Construction Index has Builders join heritage lobby in calls for listed buildings VAT plan to be axed.
