VAT: York

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much value added tax was paid by businesses in York in 2009; and if he will estimate the sum which would have accrued to the Exchequer in that year under a value added tax rate of 17.5 per cent. (324223)

The information requested is not available.

While HM Revenue and Customs' systems record an address for each VAT registered business this is not always a reliable indicator of where it does business.

Since the majority of VAT is paid by the largest businesses that typically operate throughout the UK, it is not appropriate to allocate VAT paid by a business to the location of its VAT registration.
