HMRC to Collect VAT Refunds on Gaming Machines

CasinoFollowing a recent Court of Appeal decision in its favour, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have announced that they will be seeking to recover repayments of VAT given to gaming machine operators between November 1998 and December 2005.

Many gaming machine operators were given refunds following an earlier decision: these will now be payable once again to HMRC, who will write to all affected businesses individually setting out the that are due to HMRC.  The letter will include guidance about how to repay the money.
