Vat relief on fuel for Air Ambulance Charities

Share Button

Unlike the RNLI, the Air Ambulance charities across the UK do not get VAT  relief on the fuel they use. Twin engined turbine aircraft use an awful lot of the stuff;  even at 5% reduced rate it is a significant sum annually that every  one of these charities has to raise.

There is an e-gov petition running which has already reached nearly 8000 signatures; if we can get this to 100,000 then it has to be debated in  parliament at this link.

The above was e-mail today, you never know when you need Air Ambulance when you cycling or mountain biking in the fells, hopefully never but ask everyone who visit  this blog to sign the petition.
