This update, from Steve Parkinson of the The Parkinson Partnership LLP, amends our advice for VAT-registered councils with a taxable turnover less than £85,000, having sought opinions from the CIPFA VAT committee.
Where a council is not VAT-registered and reclaims using a VAT126 form, it will NOT be affected during 2019/20, nor does it seem likely this will change in 2020/21.

In October 2018 NALC expressed its view that a local council with the general power of competence (GPC) can trade and subsequently updated its related guidance note to reflect this. NALC has now also made clear that the same factors relate to libraries and it is the legal team’s view that a local council with GPC can contribute to a library authority (county or unitary council) towards the cost of their library service.
