VAT: Small Businesses

Question for Treasury

UIN 161138, tabled on 5 July 2018

The Government’s aim is to keep VAT processes as close as possible to what they are now. This will provide the best continuity and most certainty for small businesses.

Our future relationship with the EU is subject to further negotiations.
