Published: 11/10/2021 By Hannah McCormack

From 1st October the VAT rate increased from 5% to 12.5% for businesses within the hospitality, holiday accommodation and attractions sectors. The increased rate will run until 31st March 2022 and then will return to its normal standard rate of 20% as of 1st April 2022.

The Government had reduced the rate of VAT to 5% within the tourism and hospitality sectors back in July 2020 in order to support businesses during the pandemic.
