I am hoping some of the practice members may have experience of dealing with estate agencies and of the various types of fees they charge. My question is this:
An estate agency has worked with a small developer to introduce him to a lender that provides development finance. The EA will invoice the lender a referral fee for this introduction. What is the VAT treatment of this invoice in this situation? I am struggling to find any recent guidance on the matter or guidance in a similar situation.
