VAT hike is further break on economic recovery, organisations tell Chancellor

On 1 May a broad coalition of organisations wrote to the Chancellor urging him to reconsider the ‘heritage tax’ – a 20 per cent increase in VAT on approved alterations to listed buildings.

Organised by the Federation of Master Builders, the seventeen signatories to the letter include The Heritage Alliance and several of its Members – the Campaign to Protect Rural England, the Country Land and Business Association, the Historic Houses Association, the Institute of Historic Building Conservation, and the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.
