The agents have inspected accounts for the year ended 5th April 2019 and a turnover of £78,470 was achieved from 8 letting bedrooms - The business is likely to close for the month of March 2020 as the VAT threshold of £85,000 is expected to be reached. Of course, if Bedroom 1 is used and the first floor lounge is coverted into a large en suite letting bedroom ( subject to permisssions) the turnover could be increased further and vat paid at the 10.5% only 'flat rate'.
