Reduced VAT rate now includes motorhomes and campervans

HMRC has updated its VAT guidance for hotels and holiday accommodation to cover a broader range of eligible accommodation types, including motorhomes.

This means that the temporary reduced VAT rate will now be available for those 30+ BVRLA member organisations who provide holiday accommodation in the form of a motorhome or campervan. 

The BVRLA has been lobbying government to make the case for the inclusion of motorhomes, as the original VAT exemption, announced on 8 July, covered static caravans but did not explicitly include motorhomes and campervans. 

BVRLA Senior Policy Adviser, Thomas McLennan said: “This will benefit dozens of BVRLA members who provide motorhomes and campervans, so we are delighted that HMRC listened to our calls and made the right decision to support this vital part of the tourism sector.”
