The value of shares in a number of Turkish leasing companies rose today following the announcement that the country’s government plans to reverse its earlier decision to increase VAT to 18 per cent.

Shares in Finans Leasing rose 5.5 per cent this morning and VAKIF Leasing increased 5.2 per cent, compared to 0.2 per cent overall fall across the Istanbul Stock Exchange.

The Turkish government is set to announce plans to reduce VAT to 8 per cent for most assets. This follows its decision, made without consultation at the beginning of 2008, to increase VAT to 18 per cent, which was received with uproar from across the leasing sector
