The standard schemes work on the basis that the VAT liability of the goods purchased will have the same VAT liability when they are sold. However, with food and drink, this is not necessarily the case, as the goods purchased may have been zero-rated when purchased but are liable to VAT at the standard rate (or the temporary reduced rate, see the Hospitality industry ― temporary reduced rate from 15 July 2020 to 12 January 2022 guidance note) when they are supplied due to the fact that they are supplied in the course of catering. Businesses using the point of sale scheme will be able to correctly account for VAT as the VAT liability will be determined at the time the goods are supplied. However, under the Direct Calculation and Apportionment schemes, the calculation is based on the VAT liability of the purchases made by the business. Therefore, these schemes cannot be used for catering businesses.
The catering adaptation should be used by businesses that cannot use the either normal accounting or the Point of Sale scheme and have a retail turnover of no more than £1m.
