We booked a stay at hotel in Cornwall, for late July. We paid in full for our holiday at the time of booking a couple of weeks ago.
I have requested a refund of VAT due to the VAT reduction, but the hotel has refused. In a daily newspaper today there is an article from UK tax company that states that UK companies can use a Special change of rate provision that allows them to argue that the point at which tax is charged is when the service is provided. I suspect it may be down to the goodwill of the company, but I worry that they will pocket the savings and not pass on to their customers. I know lots of hotels are having a bad time, but aren’t we all. Very frustrating as this amounts to over £250 for my holiday.
Any info on hotels honouring the saving would be welcome.
