Torpoint Ferry Tolls for Commercial Vehicles - Removal of VAT

We have recently received new advice from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs that with immediate effect there is no longer a requirement to charge Value Added Tax on the tolls charged for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes Gross Vehicle Weight using the Torpoint Ferry.

With effect from 5 April 2016 the toll charges for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes GVW will reduce from £4.20 cash to £3.70 cash, matching the toll charges for the same vehicles using the Tamar Bridge where VAT has never been applicable. Similarly the toll charges for such vehicles using pre-paid electronic payment with TamarTags will reduce from £2.10 to £1.85, again in line with Tamar Bridge toll charges.
