This is particularly true for VAT-compliance scenarios. For example, if the amount is a refund and triggers a credit and reduces the excess input and output tax, everyone must agree before the payer goes to HMRC for a production tax refund. The 82/87 press release was issued with the aim of limiting its application to actual litigation. When a settlement agreement was drafted so that the plaintiff had the right to sue the defendant for a sum of money, it was not a delivery. If the agreement confirms that it does not bring an appeal and out-of-court settlement, a pre-agreed price or a reduction at a pre-agreed price, VAT would be adjusted using the credit mechanism by referring to the finally agreed price. The situation in which the payment was made by order of the court remained unchanged. On the basis that the supplier, i.e. the supplier receiving the payment, must account for VAT on the compensation received, that seller must issue the other party a tax invoice that reflects the VAT contained in the amount of compensation. The party making the payment, as the beneficiary of the services, should then have the right to demand a deduction of VAT on the VAT paid in the course of its taxable activities. It follows that the party receiving the payment is left out of its wallet, while the party making the payment is used to the extent of the claimed deduction. Compensation, including.B.
judicial or extrajudicial transactions, is generally “outside the scope” of VAT. Since the press release, very few cases have been brought to VAT headquarters. Notable exceptions were Cooper Chasney LON/89/1409Z (VATSC06834) and Edenroc LON/88/1047X (VATSC06170). Customs and excise duties found both decisions to be consistent with the press release. Local offices looked into the applications. However, the Law Society considered that the absence of pending cases could indicate ignorance of the potential pitfalls in which transaction elements could result in VAT debt. Depending on the previous position, a comparison might be possible with respect to multiple claims, for which some compensation was DETABLE and some could not cause problems. This was a proven method of clearly distributing and spelling the VATable and non-VATable elements of the billing amount, otherwise HMRC might consider the entire payment to be a single compound delivery (probably DETABLE). It is important for both parties (particularly the beneficiary) to include in the transaction agreement the words “possibly plus VAT”. Indeed, the Commissioners of Customs – Excise have revised their VAT treatment policy on payments as part of the out-of-court settlement of disputes, after the procedure has been initiated by the service of an original procedure (or the appointment of an arbitrator).
