Choose Duncan & Toplis as your trusted partner.

High expenditure

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 general income of a park owner.

Succession planning

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.
