Can you claim back back the VAT on the fuel element of a mileage claim if the person billing you is not an employee?

Can you claim back back the VAT on the fuel element of a mileage claim if the person billing you is not an employee i.e. a freelancer?

Not unless the freelancer is VAT registered

The freelancer is charging you mileage as part of their fee and so, if they were VAT registered they would add 20% VAT to the 45p per mile.

If they are not VAT registered then it's just a 45p per mile cost to you and VAT doesn't come into it.

Mielage Claims

No, that's only for employees.
