Delivering more rural housing

The CLA made a submission to HM Treasury ahead of the 2020 Budget, recommending a number of changes to the tax system to support the delivery of housing in rural areas by CLA members.

Our proposals include:

  • Introduce a conditional exemption from inheritance tax for affordable housing for the period they remain let at affordable rent.
  • Align VAT on housing renovation and repair with new build in order to stop disincentivising the re-use of existing buildings
  • Tax neutrality between different collaboration models for the delivery of land for housing development
