Michael Page VAT win cut by £12m

Recruiter says £50m VAT overpayment win from HMRC is revised to £38m, but another £80m reclaim is still being pursued

Prominent recruiters Michael Page International said it will return £12m to
the taxman after a VAT overpayment win was revised down to £38m.

The company told shareholders today it had reached a formal agreement with HM
Revenue & Customs to return the cash by the end of the month.

The FTSE 250 business said in a statement to the City today: “As a result, of
the £50m originally received from HMRC, MPI will retain £38m and will return
£12m by the end of May 2010.”

The company is also pursuing a separate £80m claim.

“In respect of the amended claims for a further refund of an additional £80m,
net of fees, of overpaid VAT there have been no further discussions or meetings
with HMRC and MPI will continue to pursue the claim,” the company added.
