Horse Riding / Livery Stables - VAT?


Hello - Merry Christmas to you all.

I have a client that runs a riding/livery stables and runs it as a Ltd Co. She has tipped over the VAT Threshold. Looking online for advice there are a lot of suggestions that the livery side might be zero rated, depending on stabling and grazing being the main supply. Also that the riding lessons, if delivered on a sole trader basis, and if the subject is 'taught in a number of schools' then that could be zero rated too. HMRC are vague as usual.

Does anyone else deal with a stables that would be able to share their thoughts on this please?

All help greatly appreciated as always.

Many thanks.

Victoria

Be careful of artificial separation here.

When you say HMRC are vague - do you mean on the phone?

Given the complications here I would employ the services of a VAT specialist and would recommend Les who is a member on here.

Just a thought, but would the rental of the stables be an exempt supply and therefore not count towards the threshold.

Thanks Joanne and Doug - I will ask my client if she wants to pursue this further - could you confirm Les's surname or user name so I could track him down?

Really appreciate your help
