Date Added | December 21, 2020

As part of 2020’s commitment to its members by providing online training for accountants in practice, we have provided a News Update for our members on the extension of VAT Reduced Rate for Hospitality, Holiday Accommodation and Attractions.

Guidance has been updated to reflect the extension of the VAT reduced rate for tourism and hospitality from 12 January to 31 March 2021.

The government made an announcement on 8 July 2020 allowing VAT registered businesses to apply a temporary 5% reduced rate of VAT to certain supplies relating to:

  • hospitality
  • hotel and holiday accommodation
  • admissions to certain attractions

The temporary reduced rate will apply to supplies that are made between 15 July 2020 and 31 March 2021.
