Can VAT be reclaimed?

Spouse paid invoice with her credit card and credit card bill then paid from business account.

Didn't find your answer?

My client's wife has paid some of his business expenses using her own credit card.  The credit card bill was then settled from the business account.  As my client is a sole-trader, can the VAT still be reclaimed on these costs?

Hi Mitch, hope you have luck finding an answer to your question, which, by the way, should be yes, you can reclaim the VAT.

I looked at Steven Glicher & Co and couldn't find the answer. Where should I be looking Searchandmore.

As an aside Mitch - yes you can and I didn't need a website for the answer!!

Strictly speaking VAT can only be reclaimed providing the expense is made out to the registered VAT person/business/company but as the last VAT inspection I received was almost 15 years ago, a bit like payment in cash if the receipt is not addressed to the VAT registered person, and is not out of proportion to regular VAT return I cannot how it would ever get picked up
