Are you required to pay council tax on staff accommodation?

Are you required to pay council tax on staff accommodation?

If you provide staff accommodation in caravans on your holiday park and your employees have to occupy the accommodation for the better performance of their duties then those caravans could be included in your business rates rather than being assessed for council tax.  Business rates are usually cheaper than council tax. 

If you are in this situation we can advise you on your options or if you would like to apply to have the accommodation listed as business premises rather than as a chargeable dwelling we can help you to make the application.

If you would like to seek advice on this topic or assistance with any subsequent applications or if you are interested in subscribing to our parklaw service please contact the parks team by telephone on 01392 204519 or email parks@tozers.co.uk

How can you deal with illegal or unauthorised encampments?

Posted on 20th July 2021 in Rural Property & Countryside Matters, Parks, Affordable Housing

Given the lack of affordable housing, traveller sites and, now, holiday accommodation in hot spot areas, we expect to see a big rise in unauthorised encampments across popular visitor sites.
