VAT concession for home care

Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A concession to new VAT regulations means people buying-in home care will not have to pay more as a result of the new rules. Customs and Excise say the details of the concession are still to be finalised, but it will allow all businesses providing home care services to exclude salary and related costs (national insurance contributions, pension costs etc.) of home care workers from the value of their supplies. This will allow agencies providing home care to charge VAT only on their commission. The concession will cover personal care such as bathing, as well as practical tasks such as house cleaning.
