Official code used in UK before 1973 to determinate the sales tax %.

  • MT code was the official tax code in UK from 1st January to 30 June 1963.
  • KT code was used in between 1 July 1963 and 22 November 1968.
  • JT code was used from 23 November 1968 and up to 1 April 1973 when UK government took the VAT tax system into use.
