I work from home sometimes and am registered . Can I claim

Resolved Question:

I work from home sometimes and am registered for VAT.
Can I claim (some?) VAT back on equipment and appliances which I need for my work from home?
If so do I apportion it, as the equipment is also used for day-to-day work?

Thank you for your question.

You can claim VAT on business expenditure even if you work from home.

If you use equipment for business purposes and the use is say 75%, then you can claim 75% of the VAT paid.

I presume you are using normal VAT rates and not one of these VAT Flat rate schemes.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Thank you. That is reassuring.
My new bookkeeping and tax service thought not, but logic and your opinion prevailed and confirmed what I thought.
