Dear Member,

VAT Appeal

HMRC's position following the First-Tier Tribunal decision in the case of The Bridport and West Dorset Golf Club Limited

Further to the judgement made on June 1st, HMRC have now decided to go to appeal.

We have now received the not unexpected confirmation that HMRC are appealing the First Tier Tribunal's decision regarding the paying back of VAT to member’s golf clubs. In essence this means that the whole process will rumble on for some time as predicted. This has not altered the Committee's current strategy and we will continue with our current plan which is to keep to our financial plans and ensure we spend within our means. We will continue with the irrigation project and look to rejuvenate the men's changing rooms, undertake some general decoration and replace the double glazing on the first floor.

The current HMRC position is covered in their recently issued Business Brief – 30/11

The Committee
