Small businesses hit by VAT rise
The Federation of Small Businesses surveyed SMES across the UK and found that 70 per cent were concerned that they would face a ‘disproportionate hit’ by the tax increase.
Taking VAT to 20 per cent is predicted to net the Treasury more than £12 billion each year.
Chancellor George Osborne defended the increase, saying that he thought it was a ‘reasonable rate to set, given the very difficult situation we find ourselves in.’
