Get yourself a VAT-and-tax holiday thanks to FMD!

Hmm, not quite but at least Customs & Excise and the Inland Revenue yesterday set up a joint helpline to advise businesses affected by FMD about the tread softly line they will be taking in the next few weeks
Publish date:

BikeBiz: Can businesses call you, say they cant pay their tax and you wont mind?

Inland Revenue press officer: We shall be looking at every case individually. We shall be taking a sympathetic approach to all cases. We dont want rural businesses to get desperate in this crisis...We may waive financial penalties...Were keen to help all we can.
