Industry’s VAT campaign gains cross-party support

An early day motion in Parliament before the Christmas break saw cross-party support for the campaign to cut VAT on boilers and flue heat recovery to 5 per cent.

This followed last summer’s Budget 2011 and Environmental Taxes report, which urged government to consider tax incentives to boost take-up of the Green Deal.

The 5 per cent VAT rate currently includes other energy-saving technology and the motion stated that inclusion of A-rated boilers and flue heat recovery would encourage landlords and householders to install more energy-efficient equipment.
