We fully support the Cut the VAT Campaign, which argues that VAT on all home repair, maintenance and improvement work should be reduced from 20% to 5%.
Independent research shows that this particular change to VAT rates would bring about a number of significant advantages, which include stimulating economic growth, creating tens of thousands of jobs, improving the UK’s housing stock, encouraging spending on energy efficient home improvements and a dramatic reduction in the competitive advantage of cowboy builders. Information about how you can get involved in the campaign is available on the Cut the VAT website.
