The British Virgin Islands increased Hotel Accommodation Tax to 10 percent from seven percent on February 1.
The Hotel Accommodation Tax applies to any hotel or villa in which persons are ordinarily provided with board and lodging on a short-term basis.
Commissioner of Inland Revenue Karen Smith-Aaron said reservations made prior to February 1, 2017, will be taxed at seven percent, while reservations made on or after that date will be taxed at the new rate of 10 percent.
Revised forms for the February 2017 Monthly Hotel Accommodation Tax Declaration, (Form F02), as well as the Proprietor's Monthly Return are now available from the Inland Revenue Department. Supporting documentation is required for reservations made before February 1, 2017.
