VAT Exemptions

The government department responsible for collecting taxes, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), allows some sports bookings to be exempt from VAT.

If your booking meets all of the criteria below, you can choose to save money and do not have to pay VAT on the booking.

VAT Exemption Criteria

  1. The booking is for a minimum of 10 sessions.
  2. Each session is for the same sport or activity.
  3. Each session takes place in the same location.
  4. The interval between each session is at least 1 day, but no more than 14 days. However, the length of the bookings may be different on different dates. There is no exception for gaps which are greater than 14 days. This includes if the facility is closed for any reason (for example over the Christmas period).
  5. The series is to be paid for as a whole and there is written evidence to the fact. This must include evidence that payment is to be made in full whether or not the right to use the facility for any specific session is actually exercised. However, provision for a refund given by the provider in the event of the unforeseen non-availability of their facility would not affect this condition.
  6. The facilities are let out to a school, club, association or an organisation representing affiliated clubs or constituent associations. This includes a local league, for example.
  7. The person who has made the booking has exclusive use of the pitch for the duration of each booking.

Making a VAT Exempt Booking

If you want your booking to be VAT exempt, you must make sure that it meets all of the criteria above. These rules are set by government and cannot be changed as a result.

You cannot change VAT exempt bookings once they have been paid for, so you must make sure the dates and times are right for you.

All bookings must be paid for in full before the start of the booking.

Check the HMRC Website for additional information on VAT exemptions.
