Latest news on VAT on debit and credit card charges

Since 2007 HMRC has argued that certain credit and debit card charges are subject to VAT. ABTA has consistently argued that this is incorrect, and there has been considerable case law suggesting that our position is correct. Last week a further case, Bookit, was referred to the European Court of Justice with another decision that appears to support ABTA’s position. We have updated our Guidance Note with recommendations as to how Members best protect their interests. Members can also ring our VAT helplines for further advice.
