Important updateVAT on CON29 products

HMRC have announced that VAT on CON29 products is to be charged from the 1st January 2017, unfortunately due to the short notice period not all Local Authorities are able to comply with this requirement and have been given a further deadline of the 31st March 2017 to work towards and implement the necessary changes.  We have adjusted the pricing for those Local Authorities who are able to apply VAT from the 1st January, so that will already be reflected in the price quoted on our website and reflected on subsequent invoices, similar changes will be applied for the remaining LA’s come the end of March.
