HMRC has confirmed that from 1st of January 2017, all CON29 Searches will include 20% VAT.
In light of the new charges, it is anticipated that some Local Authorities may take the opportunity to review their fees and charges for pricing, whilst others have specified that they may consider absorbing the increase.
As a provider of both Regulated and Official Local Authorities, we will inform customers of any price changes, once notification is received from the Local Authorities. We can confirm that this change will not affect the current fees for our Regulated Local Searches, which remain more cost effective than most Local Authority Searches, and are backed by £10 Million Professional Indemnity Insurance.
