VAT meeting

NEWS - IN BRIEF

European finance ministers will attempt to thrash out a deal on lower rates of VAT at a meeting on January 24.

A two-year extension to the directive allowing European Union members to apply reduced rates to repair, maintenance and building work expired in December.

Countries including France, Italy and Spain fear 250,000 jobs will be lost if higher rates are imposed.
