Hi, I am slightly confused on this sample qn in BPP:

A business intends to claim VAT bad debt relief for an overdue debt amounting to £10,440 including VAT at the standard rate of 20%. Calculate the VAT that can be reclaimed.

Any help please?

    ... assuming that it meets the Bad Debt Relief criteria concerning the age of the debt etc then that is absolutely correct.
