E-minister pushes broadband tax break

E-commerce minister Douglas Alexander has urged businesses to make use of tax breaks which could cut the cost of a typical £260 broadband connection bill by more than a fifth.

Alexander said too many people in the sector are not aware of government initiatives, including tax relief, on establishing and maintaining broadband connections.

The tax breaks also apply to firms paying for connections at workers’ homes.

Replying to recommendations from the Broadband Stakeholders’ Research Group, Alexander proposed further measures to help the rollout of broadband services in the UK.

The research group seeks to intensify competition in the broadband infrastructure and service markets, clarify existing tax measures and encourage the rollout of broadband in rural areas
