VAT Relief Exemption Program
VAT Relief is granted to US Visiting Force by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the process is determined by that office. Only US personnel issued a current Ration Card are eligible for VAT Relief.
The process to use VAT Relief is multi-step and cannot be used retroactively, per HMRC. Goods/services purchased prior to invoice submission are not eligible for VAT Relief.
We are able to process VAT Relief checks within one day, however, transactions processed after 1400 will not be available until the following day. Unfortunately, we are unable to take credit cards or dollar checks for VAT Relief; payment must be made in Pounds Sterling cash.
Each individual item or service must be processed at £100 or more to be eligible for VAT Relief. Items that cost less than £100 are not eligible, per HMRC. Utilities, real property and vehicles are also not eligible for VAT Relief.
Please do not put down a deposit for items if you intend to use VAT Relief; doing so may nullify the transaction.
