VAT33a Refund Scheme – deadline extended

The VAT Refund Scheme for museums and galleries application deadline has been extended to Wednesday 1 March 2023.

DCMS has newly published GOV.UK guidance which can be found here, with further guidance and information available here.

DCMS has also provided clarity on eligibility for museums that open during seasonal hours: they understand that some museums open seasonally, which is why the scheme extends applications to museums which are open on a seasonal basis.

If there are any further questions on this clarification or other matters, DCMS would encourage applicants to get in touch through the VAT33A Enquiries Mailbox where they will be happy to answer any questions.
