B&B BUSINESS HELP AND ADVICE
VAT. For turnovers up to £77,000 there is no VAT to pay and with a turnover of up to £150,000, you can choose to go on the Flat Rate VAT Scheme which means a rate of 10.5 per cent for a B&B business.
Staff. You may need parttime workers, though often the only help an owner needs is with the cleaning.
Website. This is essential and the cost of building one has come down in recent years or you could create one yourself.
Associations. There is usually a regional or local association to help you network with other B&B owners. Visit www. bandbassociation.org
