From 1 April 2022 providers of hospitality and accommodation must charge the standard rate of VAT.

Businesses providing these services are permitted to charge 12.5 percent VAT up until 31 March 2022. After this date, they must charge the standard rate of 20 percent on hospitality and accommodation.

This measure was introduced by the government to support the leisure and hospitality sector recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. These changes will likely impact passenger and hire boat operators.
