Both entities have common shareholder for both shareholding and control. There is a significant amount of refurbushment and redesign work to be done by the investment company landlord. VAT is agreed chargeable between new landlord co and dental practice tenant.
Question - A) Is the above arrangement sufficient for the new landlord to reclaim its input VAT on the property purchased and other supplies while making its quarterly VAT returns OR Must it apply for a separate option to tax through a VAT16114A?
