Cut the VAT campaign encourages carbon reduction

Posted: 15th March 2006

CIC is encouraging its members to sign up to the ‘Cut the VAT’ online petition, having supported the campaign for several years.

The campaign aims to secure a reduced rate of VAT for encouraging carbon reduction through energy efficient repair, maintenance and improvement on domestic building work
The European Union is now giving the UK Government an opportunity to apply such a reduced rate, provided that the application is made by 31 March 2006.

The ‘cutthevat’ campaign team aims to put the maximum amount of pressure possible on the Chancellor in advance of the Budget on 22 March 2006 to persuade him to make the change. Part of this campaign is an online petition, which can be found

CIC hopes that its members and other supporters will sign the petition and forward the link on to as many people as possible
