Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order, which comes into force on 1st January 2000, amends the Value Added Tax (Special Provisions) Order 1995 (S.I. 1995/1268) (“the principal Order”). The Order aligns the definition of “collectors' items” and “works of art” with section 21 of the Value Added Tax Act 1994 (c. 23), which was amended by section 12 of the Finance Act 1999 (c. 16). This Order excludes from the definition of “collectors' items” investment gold coins, so implementing the requirement of Council Directive 98/80/EC, 12th October 1998—Special scheme for investment gold—amending Council Directive EC 77/388/EEC.
Article 3 aligns the definition of “collectors' items” and “works of art” with the definitions within section 21 of the Value Added Tax Act. It also excludes from the definition of “collectors' items” investment gold coins as defined in note 1(b) and (c) of Group 15 of Schedule 9 to the Value Added Tax Act 1994.
Article 4 corrects incorrect references in article 13(3) of the principal Order.
