Could anybody help me, i am trying to post a direct debit payment for a private healthcare,we dont have a account set up for this and so i am posting this payment through the bank, but just wondering if there is vat included in the payment.

    Hi Siva

    I have just found this on HMRC website, I hope it helps:-

    Where the service is principally aimed at the protection, maintenance or restoration of health of the person concerned, the supply is exempt.

    Just an example; we have AXA invoices relating to private healthcare and they always quote exempt from VAT.

    Thanks, Chelle and Louise.

    I thought they are exempt. its just i am trying to post all these direct debits on to the system which i have never done in the past.

    I have another question, one of our directors is renting a flat instead of staying in hotel, does this rent would include vat as on hotel rent. I guess it would, but just want to make sure with all of your expertise and knowledge.

    Not all hotels charge VAT... depends if they are VAT registered. You will need to check with the director and the landlord.

    Siva, can't you check with the invoices, that would say whether there is VAT on it.
