About partial exemption

With a wealth of experience, we are best placed to act as an offshoot of your business, and you can rest assured that we will always remain discreet. We understand just how much you value each of your clients, and we aim to help you maintain and strengthen this relationship.

If your client classifies a portion of their income as exempt from VAT, it is important to consider the following factors:

  • They must be aware that VAT is a ‘by exemption tax’, which means they will need to ensure where their business stands with regard to this so their income is correctly adjusted

  • They should closely examine the VAT incurred on costs in order to establish if ‘exempt input tax’ is above the de-minimis limit

  • If your client’s cost is above the de-minimis limit, they must critically examine whether the standard method is most beneficial for calculating the recoverable costs.

How we can help

The highly qualified team at The VAT People can help you to navigate whether any of your clients are partly exempt from VAT due to the nature of the product or service they provide. It is important that you ensure they are proactive, and remain in the know about the terms of their partial exemption at all times.
