100% VAT REFUND FOR ALL LISTED CHURCHES

Government agrees to increase funding for Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme by £30m

The Church of England welcomed the Government announcement over the future funding of alterations and repairs to its 12,500 listed buildings, ensuring all VAT claims for repairs and alterations will be fully refunded and providing £30 million a year extra money. This is on top of the £12 million already in the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme (LPWGS).

The Bishop of London described this as an acknowledgment from Government of the unique heritage value to the nation of cathedrals and churches and the way in which these alterations are enabling them to serve their local communities in a range of ways alongside being centres of worship.
