Hello and thank you for replying.
It seems to me that maybe I was not clear enough. I do not need a general advice on VAT. I am already aware of the threshold for VAT and the list with the exempt businesses. My question is specific - is a doctor who provides medical services through limited company liable for VAT. From the list on HMRC it doesn't become clear to me whether such entity would be liable or not. If you could help me with this question this would be great. If you are not able, please, let me know.
Thank you for your reply!
Unfortunately, you still has not answered my question, but rather gave me reference to HMRC website. I contacted Just answer because I needed a professional interpretation of the information on HMRC website, not because I did not know how to look on HMRC website. No where on their website there is an answer to my question, but it appears to me that rather interpretation of the information is needed in order the specific question to be answered. If I was able to do so myself, I would have not contacted Just Answer.
My confusion is based on the fact that apart from S.2 which you mentioned there is S.6 and it states that 'This section explains the liability position of supplies of health professional staff. Generally speaking, apart from the nursing agencies’ concession mentioned below, all supplies of health professional staff are taxable for VAT purposes.'
I am not sure whether a limited company will fall into this category as it will be the physical person/doctor/ who will be providing the medical services not the limited company; on the other hand supplying medical staff generally means something like an agency which obviously is different from limited company set by an individual doctor in order to provide their services.
Once again, I would like to ask you to please clarify whether you can answer with simple yes or no my question /if possible with brief explanation on the grounds of your opinion/.
