Common arguments supporting the abuse of Low Value Consignment Relief (LVCR)

Posted on

Low Value Consignment Relief (LVCR) was the relief introduced to allow the Channel Islands to export flowers to the UK without VAT becoming an impediment at a time whenthose islands undertook useful economic activity.

It has, of course, since been exploited by many industries to artificially export goods from the UK to the Channel Islands, only to then subsequently reimport them to the UK without VAT being charged.

The VAT Loophole website has now put up a page dealing with twenty eight of the common arguments about why this abuse should continue, dismissing each in detail.

I strongly recommend such careful research to all who want to bring an end to tax injustice in the UK.
