9). We are not based in the UK. How do I account for sales tax on FISHUP bookings?
FISHUP acts as your agent (that is, the contract is between you and the customer). For businesses based outside the UK, the commission ('deposit') excludes VAT and you would be unable to reclaim sales tax on our commission. You can download an invoice for our commission from the 'Bookings' tab at the top of the manager portal. Click 'VAT invoice' and select any date period for each invoice, based on arrival date or booking date.
Please consult your accountant for further advice on accounting for bookings through FISHUP.
10). How do we find out about bookings?
FISHUP booking confirmation emails are immediately sent to the customer AND to the email address specified for your site (not the Manager's email address). Please check email regularly for last-minute bookings.
We show all bookings in a 'Bookings' tab within your manager portal, and we automatically reduce your allocation - so you have full visibility of the remaining allocation.
