I work in practice for a small company. I do accounts prep mostly, however I have done the occasional VAT return. I am AAT if that helps. I did a VAT return the other day, and submitted it with client approval but I purposely posted blatant personal expenses to the directors loan account and claimed no VAT. A partner of the company, upon finding out, immediately told me very sternly that I am not in a position to make that judgement and said that I should have put them through. Am I correct or is he Correct? What could happen to me if I put through personal expenses and claim VAT and it is discovered by HMRC?
