Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
If the seller has been charging VAT on rentals then they must charge VAT on sales invoice. If you are registered for VAT then it becomes input tax which can be reclaimed on the quarterly invoice in the normal manner.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
Then the VAT charged forms part of your purchase cost. However, I would be inclined to check if the application of VAT on a premises sale is actually correct and challenge the seller's invoice.
