Increase in the standard rate of VAT
The standard rate of VAT will increase from 17.5% to 20% with effect for any supply made on or after 4 January 2011. The rate change does not affect either zero-rated supplies nor those supplies subject to VAT at the 5% reduced rate.
Detailed guidance has been issued by HMRC for businesses on implementing the change. If you would like advice on how to implement the change for your business please do get in touch.
