BACTA Issues Guidance over HMRC Claims for VAT

24 April 2008

BACTA has issued new guidance to members over the current claims being made by HMRC for unpaid VAT on Section 16 and 21 machines. HMRC had originally instructed the industry that VAT was not payable on those games, but since the onset of legal claims by the industry for fiscal neutrality of gaming machines, it is now saying the VAT was always payable. The full report appears in this week's Coinslot, available today (Thursday).
