Businesses that buy goods or services and sell them forwards in the form of accommodation, travel, or similar sectors, fall under tour operations. Some areas of the VAT on tour operations are eligible for special trades VAT rates, which means that there are potential VAT costs that can be reduced. Schemes are in place to help business owners in the tour operations sector manage their VAT payments differently. The tour operations margin scheme allows business to alter their VAT rates by paying only the difference between the purchase cost of a good or service and the resale cost. This covers multiple different types of associated goods and services within the sector, but also involves additional conditions.
