In a recent article the following statement was made regarding fuel receipts used to reclaim VAT:
Fuel receipts have to include both the VAT number and the breakdown of the VAT amount and fuel should be purchased on the day of travel, or within a reasonable period before the day of travel.
Currently, we allow a time frame of 10 days on the receipt dates. What approach do other people take? Are we too generous with that time frame?
Our claimants submit their claims via a mileage claim form at an agreed rate per mile.
