Obtaining a VAT Receipt

Because IBM Club Warwick is VAT registered, we have the potential to reclaim VAT on purchases that we make. In order to realise that potential, when obtaining tickets, goods or services on behalf of IBM Club Warwick, a VAT receipt should be requested at the time of payment. If you are satisfied that the tickets, goods or services are not liable to VAT, or that the supplier is exempt from VAT, then a non-VAT receipt will be satisfactory. NB Ticket agencies such as the NEC may give a VAT receipt for their booking fee only. The balance of the VAT amount will then have to be accounted for on a VAT receipt from another supplier.

If a VAT receipt is not forthcoming, or has not arrived by the time you are closing the accounts for an event, the following steps should be followed:


It is NOT necessary for event organisers to follow up or chase up VAT receipts from the party responsible for issuing VAT receipts, or to spend a lot of time chasing up replies. Once the letter has been sent, and the other copy supplied to the treasurer, the event organiser may consider the matter closed.

Note: the template letters above are given context by referring to Notice 700/21 - Keeping VAT records.
