Canal and River Trust
I was with some friends last night and one of them pointed out that a Trust, such as CRT, cannot charge VAT as they do not pay VAT. I had a look at the licence fee this morning here and if you scroll to the bottom it says:
“Licences begin on the first day of the month. Prices include VAT at 20%.”
What is that about then?!
I emailed them to ask them and here is their reply.
“..Thank you for your email. We are still able to charge VAT and whilst we are now a charity, generally there has been no significant change to the VAT status of our supplies of goods and services. The reasons for charging VAT on boat licences and moorings in particular also remain the same.
