One of our fleet drivers required their windscreen repaired under the fleet insurance policy. I have now received an invoice: excess £0.00, VAT £20.00. Is anyone able to explain what is going on here?

    I think this a specific agreement with the Insurance Industry.

    What happens is the Insurance company pay the Net Figure for, Lets say a Vehicle Repair and your company pays the VAT for the actual repairs, Which is then reclaimed by your company.

    We sometimes receive invoices of Excess = £500 & Vat = £850

    This is because the Vat is calculated on the actual repair cost of which the Net is payable by the Insurance company.

    I think this is correct.

    Thanks

    What he says - because a VAT registered company can reclaim the VAT element, the insurance company dont pay it.
