Tax Tip

VAT exemption for catering and other services linked to education

HMRC have issued a Brief advising that they will not alter their current policy on the VAT educational exemption until the Court of Appeal has delivered its judgment in the Brockenhurst College case next year, although they will consider claims and interim repayments based on the Upper Tribunal's decision.

Stuart Coleman, Manager of the Tax Department of ABDS comments:
“Both the First Tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunals decisions were that supplies of catering made by students to third parties were sufficiently closely related to exempt supplies of education. HMRC maintains that students must be the direct beneficiaries for the supplies to qualify for exemption.”

If you need any help and advice with VAT or other tax matters, contact Lavinia Newman Stuart Coleman or Liz Kennett now to discuss how ABDS can help bring their experience to these matters.
