Flat Rate VAT and Purchases


If you are on flat rate VAT, should there be any figure on your VAT return for total value of purchases excluding VAT?


Our Flat Rate VAT guide can be found here, it covers most of the key subjects related to FRV. There is a section on Reclaiming Capital Assets.

In most cases you wouldn’t be claiming back any VAT paid on purchases when on the FRV scheme. So you wouldn’t expect to see a figure in box 7.
