VAT Flat Rate Scheme
As announced in the Autumn Statement 2016, there will be a new 16.5% rate from 1 April 2017 for businesses with limited costs, such as many labour-only businesses.
Anti-forestalling provisions have been introduced to prevent any business defined as a limited cost trader from continuing to use a lower flat rate beyond 1 April 2017.
