The changes are on top of the value added tax break it received last month as the authorities try to help the company stay in business.

However, Rover will pay a interest fee on any money deferred, in order to avoid EC investigations over state aid, while the Treasury claims the total amount of tax deferred by the manufacturer remains the same, at less than £40m, according to the Financial Times.
