Treasury closes 900 million-pound #energy firm #tax loophole

The Treasury closed down a 900 million-pound tax loophole on Wednesday by preventing energy firms from claiming money off their tax bills against installation costs dating back decades.The move is the latest step in Britain’s drive to maximise tax receipts as it tries to reduce the country’s budget deficit and lead a global clampdown on aggressive tax avoidance and evasion by multinational firms and wealthy individuals.New legislation will stop gas and electricity distributors from making new claims for tax relief against the cost of providing new or improved supply to commercial premises in cases where the bill has already been met by the company.
