Travel Tax

A business’ VAT position can often be key to its profitability. In the travel industry, the VAT rules can be particularly complex and frequently changing, often meaning it is difficult to keep track, and to ensure VAT efficiency.

Travel businesses and tax

Every business should optimise its tax obligations while leveraging the latest allowances and tax reliefs available. In the realm of travel businesses, effective tax planning should consider not only your financial obligations but also your licensing and bonding requirements, as well as your personal financial well-being.

Our Travel Tax Team collaborates closely with both your team and our Travel Accounts & Audit Team. Together, they uncover opportunities often overlooked by travel businesses and help you steer clear of potential pitfalls. These opportunities span from devising tailored Employee Share Schemes to securing substantial R&D Tax Relief claims, a realm in which we excel within the Travel Industry.
