Concerns ahead of caravan tax launch

Help

Manufacturers have expressed concerns about the introduction of VAT on caravans.

From 6 April static caravans will be subject to a 5% rate of VAT.

The new rate was lowered from the 20% levy initially proposed by the government following widespread opposition from MPs of all parties and the industry.

Caravan makers have said the tax is "something we could have done without".
