We are often asked by holiday park owners whether they need to pay council tax for their staff accommodation.
Do park owners need 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.
