HM Revenue and Customs holds details of the tax affairs of all VAT registered taxpayers. This includes, where relevant, details of any VAT collected from Further Education Colleges in respect of changes in use of buildings that were VAT zero-rated on construction. However, this information is not held centrally and could be collected only at disproportionate cost.
