Why choose Duncan & Toplis?
Having worked with clients within the seasonal caravan and park homes sector in the East Midlands and beyond for many years, we understand the challenges specific to the leisure industry.
Our expertise enables us to offer practical, realistic advice and share areas of best practice to maximise success for our clients, particularly on the current issues caravan and park owners are facing.
Due to the high level of maintenance required on holiday homes, the running of a seasonal caravan or park home can be more expensive for landlords to manage than a standard buy-to-let residential home.
The new tax structure imposed on landlords for buy-to-let properties makes holiday-home ownership more desirable due to tax breaks that they receive. Additional tax-saving benefits are available - for example, capital allowances can be offset against the general income of a park owner.
It is important that caravan and park owners assess the trading status of their company for inheritance tax (IHT) purposes. Many make the assumption that their business will be fully covered by business property relief however this is not always the case and careful planning is needed. Our tax specialists can discuss the status of your business and advise on the best way to avoid IHT.
