A business that makes both taxable and exempt supplies is partly exempt. Broadly, VAT on costs related (or ‘attributable’) to taxable supplies is recoverable whilst VAT incurred on costs related to exempt supplies is irrecoverable (subject to some de minimis rules for negligible amount of exempt input tax). Partial exemption methods exist so that businesses can apportion their input tax between costs used for taxable activities (where VAT is recoverable) and costs used for exempt activities (where VAT is irrecoverable). Partial exemption methods can also cover non-business activities on which VAT is generally also irrecoverable.
HMRC’s published guidance on partial exemption can be found in Notice 706 and its Partial Exemption manuals. HMRC also publishes a Partial exemption toolkit which provides guidance for businesses and advisers dealing with partial exemption issues.
