Here's the certainty (or not) from a letter just published from HMRC to the Chair of CIPFA VAT Committee.

Dear Mike
Property search fees
I refer to the decision made at the November CIPFA meeting for an implementation date of 1 January 2017 in relation to the VAT treatment of property search fees.
I understand the deadline is not possible for a few authorities. In fairness to those authorities which have already made the change, I do not propose a general extension to the deadline
of 1 January 2017. Instead, where Local Authorities cannot make the change by 1 January, they will need to tell us when they can do so - but we expect full implementation by no later than 31 March.
Yours sincerely
Alan Carey
Customer Relationship Manager
