VAT REGISTERED

A VAT registered contractor must carry out the eligible works. Claims cannot be made for materials alone, they must be incorporated into the fabric by a registered VAT contractor.

You should check whether the contractor is registered for VAT, by asking for his / her VAT registration number, which must be shown on the invoice.

Charities / faith groups that are registered for VAT (because they charge an entrance fee or run business activities) and pay a reduced effective rate of VAT,
can only claim the amount irrecoverable from HM Revenue & Customs (previously Customs & Excise). Evidence of this agreement must be provided with the application.

VAT INVOICE

You must submit with your application, a VAT invoice (or receipted invoice) from the contractor. Claims will not be paid without this documentary evidence.

Where an invoice covers both eligible and ineligible works / memorials, this distinction must be made clear either on the invoice, or in question 22 of the application.
