X Factor final 2017: Government waives VAT on winner's charity single

The Government has announced that VAT collected on the X-Factor winner’s single will go to charity for the seventh year in a row.

Chancellor Philip Hammond said that 100 per cent of the profits from the sales of the single will go to children’s charities Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase.

He said: “These amazing organisations do such valuable work helping children with life-threatening conditions and supporting their families to cope in extremely challenging circumstances.

“Every song bought will help to fund their vital work.”

The Government previously waived the VAT on other charity singles, including the Jo Cox Foundation single in 2016, the Save the Children single released in 2015 and the 2011 Military Wives Choir single.

The X Factor final takes place on ITV at 7.05 pm on Saturday.
