I used to live very close to Wetherby ... I have driven past the racecourse on numerous occasions and the car-boot sale site close by too ... never driven past when there was actually a sale on there though ... I always promised myself I would go to one of the sales during recent holidays back home to Yorkshire but I've never got round to it ... perhaps next time I visit UK I should give it a go ...

I think if you had half decent stuff (or even the finest quality items in your case Cheeky ) then selling probably wasn't going to be too bad. I was talking to a couple of people that I know who had stalls there and they had done OK but both commented that there was less for them to buy than normal.

I don't think that raising stall fees significantly like that for whatever reason is something that is going to improve the situation. I was told about the rise and immediately thought as a potential customer it might not be worth me attending next time, as something like that is bound to reduce stallholder numbers.

The fees increase may well have something to do with HMRC giving a new interpretation as to VAT on stands at Fairs. According to Antiques Gazette,the big boys running Antique Fairs are going to charge it on Pitch fees starting very soon.

Not just the big boys. All the stallholders at Hartley Wintney were handed a leaflet about the new VAT charges last Sunday.

Those who are VAT registered will presumably be able to claim it back?

Any dealer registered would be able to claim it back but.......... at the moment you must register if your turnover is £79,000 or above per annum so very few dealers, who trade at fairs, would need to be registered.

Most of the dealers I know are doing it to supplement their pension or as a weekend hobby.
They'd be better off selling at car boot fairs.

It is a new interpretation of VAT rules by HMRC.

HRMC have declared that, from last November (2012), the supply of space at fairs (antiques & collectors, craft, vintage, art deco etc) should be subject to VAT, effectively putting the cost of the stallholders pitch up by 20%.

Note that it is an interpretation, which could be challenged, but there would be a cost involved for fair organisers to do that.

I have just read this in Antiques Info. Two of the big organisers (IACF and Nelson) are launching a legal challenge and they are also have a petition at http://www.saveourfairs.co.uk

What it will do if it stays in force is to make it more attractive for a stallholder to stand at a fair where the organiser's turnover is less than the threshold i.e. where the organiser is not VAT registered.

That is unless the small organiser decides to raise prices to make more profit, pretending that they are VAT registered.
