Petition Action

Create a fairer VAT regime for social care

Petition Details

Welfare services provided by regulated social care companies are exempt from VAT. This means that we do not charge VAT on services to the most vulnerable. However, current VAT rules mean we cannot reclaim VAT on business expenses. We are seeking a review so the sector becomes zero-rated for VAT.

Additional Information

The social care sector plays a vital role in supporting the over-stretched healthcare system and is operating under increasing financial pressure. This petition aims to create a viable financial model for providers to operate in that will help to future proof our sector so that we can continue to provide our vital services in domiciliary care, care home and community settings.
Providers are committed to reinvesting VAT savings back into their businesses to benefit clients and carers.
