Ordnance Survey: VAT

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether Ordnance Survey has reduced its retail prices for items which attract value added tax since December 2008. (258395)

The change in the standard rate of VAT effective from 1 December 2008 has been applied to business prices for all Ordnance Survey data products and services that are subject to VAT at the standard rate.

Ordnance Survey paper maps are zero-rated for VAT and hence no price adjustments have been made for these products.
