2. All amounts are shown gross of VAT. Where an amount billed remains uncollected and is subsequently written off, the VAT component will be recovered by the Group.

Of the GBP18m of rent outstanding, GBP6m relates to customers who have withheld payment pending documentation of agreed concessions.

We continue to take a proactive approach to addressing the challenges the pandemic presents to our people, our customers and our business. In early April 2020, we established a customer support fund of GBP80m for occupiers who most need our help. To date, GBP50m of rent concessions has been allocated to customers.
