Hospitality VAT rate returns to 20%
The reduced rate VAT for hospitality venues ends today with the VAT rate increasing from 12.5% back to the original 20%
The VAT reduction was introduced for businesses trading in the hospitality sector in July 2020 with the rate originally dropped to 5%, increasing to 12.5% in October 2021.
The reduction in VAT was given to VAT-registered businesses from the hospitality, hotel and holiday accommodation sectors to financially support them during the initial lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic.
