In Topic: (Another) question on the rules of reselling metered electric

19 March 2012 - 09:41 AM

I am intrigued with the question of vat on an electrical hook up. I am charged vat at 20%, on an optional hook up + electricty unit charges, whilst the regulations for vat state

'Optional hook up charges to electricity and gas services for touring caravans/motor homes will be subject to VAT at the reduced rate. Any charge which is not optional forms part of the overall pitch fee which is standard-rated.'

Seeing little difference between a marina berth and a caravan pitch I wonder what the rate should actually be.
