Heritage Healthcare has become a member of a lobbying campaign to change the current VAT regime for social care services.
Director, Michelle Fenwick, is one of the founding members of the consortium of home care providers who are seeking zero-rated VAT for social care providers who deliver vital care and support to our communities.
Currently, good and services provided by regulated social care organisations are exempt from VAT, meaning we do not charge VAT on our services. However, the sector’s current VAT status means we cannot reclaim VAT on operating expenses, including utilities, rent, repairs and other costs to run the business.
The savings that could be made with zero-rated VAT would be significant to social care providers and would enable businesses to invest in essential equipment and technology to improve their client’s experience, invest in additional training and qualifications for carers and better reward the fantastic and dedicated work carers do.
On Thursday 6th August, Michelle Fenwick and her fellow founding members of the consortium will be part of a webinar to share their views on why the sector should be lobbying for a revision to the VAT status quo.
The webinar will be hosted by BBC News Presenter and Business Correspondent, Ben Thompson, at 4.30 – 5.45pm, and will give home care providers to chance to find out how they can support the campaign.
