IP COMPLETION DAY: 11pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marked the end of the Brexit transition / implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

This guidance note provides details of the TOMS calculations that are required whilst the reduced rate applies to supplies covered by the TOMS. This guidance note should be read in conjunction with the following notes:

See the Hospitality industry ― temporary reduced rate from 15 July 2020 to 31 March 2022 guidance note for more information. As a result, additional steps may need to be taken when completing the TOMS calculation to reflect the change in VAT rate from 1 October 2021 (when the reduced rate increases from 5% to 12.5%) and from 1 April 2022 (when the rate increases from 12.5% to 20%).
The calculations below have not been updated to reflect the introduction of the new reduced rate from 1 October 2021.
These tables have been extracted from HMRC Notice 709/5.
