It’s not surprising there is often confusion, given that the VAT implications here can differ according to the type of expense and how it’s used.
To help, we have produced 2 guides:
Claiming VAT on employee expenses
This simple overview focuses on common expenses such as meals, hotel accommodation, staff entertainment, domestic accommodation, mobile phones and mobile phone charges.
Claiming VAT on motoring expenses
Claiming back the VAT on motoring expenses is a complex area to navigate. This is because it depends on variables such as the type of car, how it’s bought/rented, how it’s used and how it runs (fuel or electric) etc. This guide looks exclusively at the different motoring options and implications.
