VAT Charge On Hairdresser Chair Rental

January 09, 2013

Beware, HMRC have now made it quite clear that Salons have to charge VAT on Chair Rental to Hairdressers

A common arrangement in hairdressers’ is for the shop owner to rent chairs to other hairdressers instead of employing them as stylists. This rental income had previously been exempt from VAT in certain cases.

But, from 1 October 2012, it will always be subject to standard rate VAT. This means the chair rental income will now always be counted as turnover for a hairdressers’ business. They will need to bear this in mind when checking whether they have exceeded the VAT Registration threshold.
