There have been updates to the VAT refund scheme for charities (VAT Notice 1001).
The charities included should be based in the UK, Isle of Man, another EU member state, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway and are:
- palliative care charities
- air ambulance charities
- search and rescue charities
- medical courier charities
The update include VAT that can be reclaimed and the definition of a qualifying charity. Section 2.8 states that ‘VAT that cannot be claimed under sections 33C and 33D’ and includes a reminder that for VAT incurred in another member state, charities will need to reclaim in those countries.
The guidance also provides information on the reliefs available to other charities. For further information visit: bit.ly/gov-vat1001
