Boiler Scrappage Scheme

The Government appears to be concentrating on encouraging green lifestyles and is also expected to offer a scrappage scheme for central heating boilers, to encourage people to buy more energy efficient new boilers and to support the UK's manufacturing industry.

The car scrappage scheme was a huge success and it is hoped that this move will be supported by home-owners and retailers in the same way. With the re-introduction of the full rate of VAT due early next year, any way of saving extra money when buying high ticket items such as boilers can only improve sales.
