Re: VAT registration when selling to the EU

My view is that by using the EFN programme you will not be liable to be registered for VAT in the UK. But do note that sales into the EU do count towards your UK VAT registration threshold.
Do ask

Re: Place of supply + reverse charge for non-EU service invoices

I think this is a General Rule service, so the Place of Supply is where the recipient is located, ie: UK. Reverse Charge applies.

Re: Is this Artificial separation?

Given the distinctions between the existing and the new business, I think HMRC would struggle to challenge your arrangement. But you will want some advice to review the arrangements, and perhaps highlight and address any weaknesses.

Re: Vat on property development

There is no problem!
Where the lease is properly zero rated, you can claim all input tax incurred, subject to the usual rules.
Don't lose sleep over this one.

Re: VAT rate for baby changing bags

Not zero rated, as not clothing. (Unless it includes some items of children's clothing.)
Not reduced rated.
So must be standard rated.

Re: Vat on property development

If the supplies are zero rated, then register for VAT, and reclaim input tax. You can back-date such registration up to four years.

Re: Vat on property development

If A's supplies are exempt, it cannot claim the VAT at 5%. (If you have converted a commercial building, is the resulting structure 'dwellings' or 'RRP'? - the scheme may not be eligible for 5%.) A (Skyline?) cannot claim VAT on gas and electricity since the supply is an exempt lease. What will you ...

Re: VAT liability on 2nd business

VAT law considers the 'person,' not the business. So two sole trader businesses are a single 'person' for VAT purposes. If the aggregate taxable turnover exceeds £85k you have to register for VAT.

Re: VAT on fire and fireplace installed in new build before completion

I would expect the installation of a fire place to be zero rated. It becomes part of the fabric of the building; it is 'ordinarily installed/incorporated.' The builder should have no problem with this. AND he should not charge you the VAT.

Re: Charitable Trust & VAT

This might work; you should read VAT Notice 749 which deals with the way Parish Councils can reclaim VAT.

If the Council is a subscriber to the national body SLCC, there is a VAT Specialist who will be able to help.
