VAt registartion pre reg VAT reclaim

Didn't find your answer?

Hi, Just confirming that what i believe is true:

Client is registering for VAT after a few years in business. He has a laptop and various other capitalised assets and wants to reclaim the VAT on them. They are all still in use in the business. 

Am I right in thinking that since the whole amount was capitalised and AIA claimed, that when the VAT is reclaimed we have to treat the VAT element as a disposal of assets and pay a balancing charge?

thanks in advance

How many is "a few" ?

And how long since those assets were bought ?

You treat the VAT as a part disposal. Whether it creates a balancing charge or not will depend on whether there's anything left in the pool.

The assets were all bought within the 4 years as allowed. AIA was claimed 100% on all of them so nothing in the pool. So a balancing charge of the full VAT amount.
