VAT on Entertaining Clients

Mon 15th Nov 2010

Currently HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) will not generally allow the claiming back of Value Added Tax (VAT) on entertainment. However a recent European Court Judgement has concluded that the block on the reclaiming of VAT on business entertaining of overseas clients is inconsistent with EU law.

As a result the law in this area will be adjusted and HMRC will consider claims against VAT in relation to the entertainment of  overseas clients. Unfortunately the block on recovering VAT on entertainment of anyone other than an overseas clients (e.g. UK Clients and non-UK contacts who are not clients for example prospects) remains in place. There is no change to direct tax (e.g. Corporation Tax) with entertaining is still disallowed.
