Customs & Excise Customs has set out the VAT liabilities likely to apply to individual savings accounts. Most services connected with ISAs will be exempt of VAT, but a few – such as tax management, marketing and advertising – will be standard rated. (Business briefing 7/99).

Customs has issued a discussion paper seeking comments on the proposals to rationalise and simplify the VAT export regime. (Business briefing 6/99).

The Chartered Institute of Taxation CIoT’s next conference will take place on 29 April at the Institute of Directors in London. The subject will be the changing world of indirect taxation. Fee to be confirmed. On 23 June, CIoT will hold a conference on this year’s Finance Bill.
