I am going to run this page up until the day the Green Deal comes into effect. All other home improvement measures included in the Green Deal are lucky enough to have 5% or 0% VAT, yet even though windows are also part of the deal, they are still subject to 20% VAT. I think we all agree that cutting this to 5% or less would help generate extra business if people knew that windows had lower VAT and would certainly help our industry overall. It would also demonstrate to our industry that the Government really is taking us seriously.
So, to show your support for lower VAT rates please add your name and comments below. I’m hoping to get as many names, and hopefully some big ones too! This is an important issue I think we all need to get behind, so please take your time to pop your name underneath!
UPDATE: Please click the link to open a PDF letter template to send to your local MP to show your support for fairness in the Green Deal, for windows to have a 5% VAT rate. The more of us that do it, the better the chance we have. You can find your MP’s contact details here: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/
