Please note comments below:

 

·         Wirral submits claims on a monthly rather than a quarterly basis

·         Wirral’s VAT claims include amounts for Merseyside Pension Fund and Mosslands and Wallasey schools which fall under Wirral’s VAT registration

·         Wirral is a net receiver of reimbursement of VAT from HMRC (unlike vast majority of businesses which are net payers).

·         The treatment of VAT is governed by a number of  laws and specific rules for local authorities which are administered by HMRC.

·         Local Authorities are able to recover VAT that they incur in the undertaking of their duties  from HMRC. There are however some exceptional circumstances where this would not happen.

Local Authorities in turn must pay over to HMRC any VAT that it has to impose on any VAT eligible services it supplies and receives an income for.

 

·         The authority does not budget for VAT as the assumption is that any VAT it incurs will be reimbursed and any VAT it charges will be paid over to HMRC.

 

We trust you find this information of assistance, thank you for your enquiry, kind regards
