Post Subject: Diesel VAT

I understand that to gain relief for "domestic" use of diesel I shall need to keep records of running the engine solely to charge batteries and heat water. However when cruising batteries are charging and water being heated. Is it therefore possible to claim for a proportion of the fuel use? If so what sort of proportion would be applicable?

Dear Malcolm, I have no intention of being sited in any case brought against a boater by Customs & Revenue who are the only authority until case law builds up. I can only advise you to ask them. I am sure all boaters would be very interested to see their reply. However I strongly suspect their answer may not be the one you (and all boaters) want to hear. If you are a member of a boating organisation like NABO, RBOA or even the IWA they may well have contacts in a far better position to get a sensible ruling than an individual. Sorry, Tony Brooks
