I'd sign it, but Dave is going to say no anyway.

re: Petition to reclaim VAT on Air Ambulance fuel

i thought they already could claim VAT back on items used in the course of running the business or charity ?.

re: Petition to reclaim VAT on Air Ambulance fuel

They can only reclaim it. Not charging VAT on the fuel is against EU rules. AFAIK Once VAT has been applied to any product it cannot be zero rated again. Only reduced to a rate of 5%.

gotcha ,thanks for the explanation .if this petition gets a result it would make a big difference to the daily cash flow of £7,200 per day in fuel

Could I suggest that the title of the thread be amended to be a little more eye-catching as this is a very worthwhile petition which is probably getting lost in the current title - thanks.
