Upper Tier Tribunal rejects 'Fleming' claim

A rather terse Upper Tier decision in relation to a Fleming claim of around £3.5m, but which, at the time of submission, was not precisely quantified. The taxpayer had lost at FTT, and raised 4 arguments against the decision. The UKUT Judge rapidly rejected all 4 arguments.

If you do think HMRC owe you VAT:

  1.  you must quantify it, providing reasoning and calculations, and
  2.  you must submit your claim within the time limit.
