Basic principles of registration: margin schemes
Tour Operators’ Margin Scheme
The turnover for registration purposes is the difference between the buying price and the selling price. The full value of all in-house supplies must also be taken into account. See Notice 709/5 Tour Operators Margin Scheme (HMRC website) for further details.
Margin schemes for second-hand goods, works of art, antiques and collector’s items
The turnover for registration purposes is the full selling price of the goods.
