Concerns ahead of caravan tax launch

Manufacturers have expressed concerns about the introduction of VAT on caravans.

From 6 April static caravans will be subject to a 5% rate of VAT.

The new rate was lowered from the 20% levy initially proposed by the government following widespread opposition from MPs of all parties and the industry.

Caravan makers have said the tax is "something we could have done without".

Tim Iredale reports.
