VAT back on the rise

As of January 1st 2010, the standard rate of VAT will be returning to 17.5%. If you want to take advantage of the reduced rate, and potentially save hundreds of pounds on your upcoming home improvements project, you should be thinking about getting started as soon as possible.

In November 2008, the government reduced the standard rate of VAT to 15% in an effort to stimulate economic growth. This has always been billed as a temporary measure, and it’s due to come to an end in under two months.

If you’re thinking about having home improvements done, and want to take advantage of the lower rate of VAT, which could potentially save you hundreds of pounds over waiting until next year, then you really need to be getting a move on planning your project now.
