Is there a change to the 9% VAT rate?
I am running a B&B and I heard there might be a change to the 9% VAT rate?
The government did announce a change to the reduced 9% VAT rate for the hospitality sector in Budget 2023. From 01 March 2023 the VAT rate will go back up to 13.5%.
In practical terms you will need to have your computer and till system set up and ready to go to adapt to this change. Because this was previously the VAT rate for your industry it should be a code that exists on your system already and therefore a straightforward enough recoding exercise to ensure you are charging the correct VAT rate from 01 March next year.
