Tax Relief on Lap Dancing

I see that Harriet Harman is trying to abolish tax relief on lap dancing, whereby she claims that the VAT etc expended on corporate entertaining in a lap dancing club can be reclaimed as a legitimate business expense.

Since when was she made Chancellor of the Exchequer?

Will this proposed tax change apply to only female lap dancers or males as well?

Will it apply to establishments classed at restaurants where there is a cabaret performance that may, or may not, include a lapdance/striptease?

Oh, one other small point, client entertaining is not an allowable deduction when calculating corporation tax.

Maybe she could find something else to apply her "talents" and energy to?

  1. Entertaining has been on the list of things that you are not allowed to claim VAT back on for a very long time (as you mentioned). Perhaps the lady should spend more time actually looking at the Tax rules!
