We own a static caravan and pay 'rates' on it via the site which have always been free of vat until this year. Do you know whether the govenment has legslated to add vat at 20% onto rates at leisure parks?

I know they are putting vat on new static caravans but that is more of a purchase tax [beking]

I too am a static owner and as I understand it now, the government will now only be adding 5% vat on caravan sales as opposed to the proposed 20%, whether that be new or second hand. The new VAT will come into force in May 2013 not October as proposed. This should not affect anything else at this time e.g. rates or site fees etc

Rates are the Local Authority charges, like you pay on your main home but less as not a permanent residence. No VAT is paid on these.
