VAT Increase Will Hit Home Improvements Industry In 2011

George Osborne’s budget hit hard when he announced a VAT increase for 2011.

The headline VAT increase from 17.5% to 20% will begin to take effect on January 4, 2011 which means that any big-ticket purchases made after this time will cost significantly more.

There is, however, a window of opportunity in which make these purchases before the increase occurs. Buy your Britelite windows, doors and conservatories before the end of October to be sure of escaping the higher rate of tax. Spending now can save hundreds of pounds in the future — money which might be better spent elsewhere.

As always, we at Britelite Windows are committed to giving you the best possible value for money, which is why we fit A-rated energy efficient windows and doors as standard, allowing you to make future savings on heating bills too. Furthermore, our window scrappage scheme means you could save even more on the cost of your new double glazing by paying you money for your old windows.
