Finance Bill — New Schedule 1 — Transitory Arrangements — VAT on Alterations To Certain Listed Buildings — 3 Jul 2012 at 19:31
The majority of MPs voted for transitional arrangements to phase in the application of VAT to alterations of certain listed buildings where works were contracted prior to the budget.
During the debate leading up to the vote David Gauke MP (South West Hertfordshire, Conservative) explained the purpose of the proposed new schedule saying:
- We propose to remove the anomaly whereby approved alterations to certain listed buildings are zero-rated while alterations to other buildings and repairs to and maintenance on all buildings are standard-rated. We included transitional arrangements for alteration works to listed buildings which had been contracted before the Budget.
The proposed new Schedule 1 dealt with those transitional arrangements.
