Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.You can only claim VAT on invoices that are addressed to your company and the suppliers' VAT Reg No has to be on the invoice.If you have subcontracted the job and the subcontractor is not VAT registered, then you can't reclaim VAT on those expenses recharged to you by the subcontractor.I would agree with your third opinion ... i.e. No, the expenses belong to the subcontractor and the subcontractor is not VAT registered..I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
Thank you for your answer.
Would you be able to supply the section of the HMRC documents that state this.
I would just like to send something in writing to my colleague, I just prefer to have the document, rather than try to explain.
I t would make me feel much more comfortable.
Thank you, ***** ***** just clarify, that it is the expenses that we are talking about, e.g. transport, hotels etc.
I know the answer, but just want to be completely sure.
That was my understanding of it. Now I just have to explain to my colleague, who think s he knows all about it!?!
Wish me luck.
