Really Silly Question- VAT on expenses

Im having a complete off day, head cold and pending cima exams are in the way of my thought process.

When my client raises an invoice to a supplier they are quoting £60 for travel

Now are they ok to charge VAT on top of that £60? or should they only charge VAT on the service element of thier invoice? or does it depend on the basis of the £60 charge, same goes for expenses incured.

My thought is that they can worries me that the current accountants haven't advised them of this?

found what i wanted
Ty guys.

    VAT on the service provided will include all of the invoice I am sure!

    If you're quoting a standard charge for travelling to customer's place that's "Call out charge" and it is subject to vat.
