Other local authority activities: miscellaneous (F to M): foster parents’ expenses

Local authorities reimburse foster parents for expenses such as children’s birthday presents and holidays. However the supplies in question are made to the foster parents. Therefore any VAT included in the purchase by foster parent is not recoverable by the authority.
