REDUCTION IN THE SITE FEE VAT RATES

GOVERMENT GUIDENCE NOTE
THE VAT RATE ON SITE FEE’S UNTIL 30th SEPTEMBER 2021 IS 5.0%
FROM 1st OCTOBER 2021 UNTIL 31st MARCH 2022 THE SITE FEE VAT RATE IS 12.5%

To all Rally Marshal’s and Members, we have been advised by the Caravan and Motor Home club of the clubs wish to follow the Government’s Guidance note above.

To enable this guidance to be met by the centre the existing Rally Booking and Record sheet and the existing Balance sheet in the Marshal’s documentation area of the web site have been replaced with new spread sheets titled

  • Booking Sheet with SITE FEE VAT Variance (COVID 19)
  • Balance Sheet with SITE FEE VAT Variance (COVID 19)

Both these sheets are to be filled in, in the usual manner but have been formulated to calculate the relevant VAT payable by the centre member for site fees 5% and other costs (Admin, Plaques, Social Fee, Rally Fee) 20%.

Using the “Booking Sheet with SITE FEE VAT Variance (COVID 19)” will calculate the costs for the rally envelope (members cost).

Using the “Balance Sheet with SITE FEE VAT Variance (COVID 19)” Left Hand side will calculate the same totals as the booking sheet.

Now when we come to pay the landowner and filling in the right-hand side of the Balance sheet, Marshal’s are asked to be aware that the notes from Government are for guidance and not mandatory.  This means that landowners that charge VAT may choose to accept the 5% VAT rate on the site fee or may insist on the 20% rate.

With School’s etc, that don’t charge VAT and Landowners that charge 5% VAT when using the above-mentioned sheets, the Marshal will have charged the correct VAT (5% on site fee) for the centre to pay the Caravan and Motorhome club VAT rates.  The cost payable to the school/Landowner etc is to be entered in the Right-hand side of the Balance sheet as normal.

With Land owners that still insist on the 20% VAT rate on Site Fee’s the Marshal is asked to pay the landowner when applicable the Site Fee plus the requested 20% VAT rate, from the funds received from rally members.  Please ask for a receipt and VAT registration number.  The full amount paid to the landowner is then entered into the right-hand side of the balance sheet.  Please add a comment on the VAT rate paid i.e. 5% or 20% on site fee.

There should always be enough funds in the payments to Rally Marshal to cover the eventuality of a landowner expecting 20% vat on site fees, although the rally marshal has only charged the members 5% on site fees. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Treasurer or a member of the Committee.
