Charges for delivering, unloading and positioning a static caravan
Buying a static caravan is an expensive investment, but you can save some of those costs by selling it on. However, you will have to pay VAT on the purchase and the sale of the caravan. This is due to the price of the caravan, the value of the removable contents, and the delivery, unloading and positioning charges.
The cost of the removal, unloading and positioning of a static caravan will be dependent on the size of the caravan, the amount of space available and the method of transport. The cost can range from PS1000 to PS2000, plus VAT.
You may also have to pay disconnection charges, escorts and police clearance. You should check the pitch license agreement and park rules before making the move. A longer route may mean more fuel costs. You should consider the amount of time it will take to move your caravan.
The tax on the removal of the removable contents of a zero-rated caravan is explained in the VAT information sheet 04/13. The removable contents are treated as separate supplies for VAT purposes.
VAT treatment for removable contents
Whether or not you are selling a static caravan to a trader, you need to know about the VAT treatment for removable contents. Depending on the size of the caravan, you may have to pay standard-rated or zero-rated VAT.
The caravan will be standard rated for VAT if it is a caravan that is 7 metres in length or less and has a width of 2.55 metres. This is the length and width that meets BS 3632:2005 or an earlier version of that standard. If the caravan is longer than seven metres, it will be zero rated for VAT.
You can sell your caravan and the removable contents separately, or advertise the caravan and the removable contents together. However, you must account for the full value of the removable contents separately.
If you are selling a caravan, you must also account for the value of the removable contents, including the unloading charges. You can apply the second hand margin scheme if you are selling a caravan. This scheme is designed to account for the difference between the purchase price and the selling price. However, this does not mean that you will account for the full value of the removable contents.
