Annal Nayyar updates on Reimbursement of VAT on costs associated with Academy Conversion section 33

Councils  have rejected claims by convertor academy schools for VAT incurred  during the lead in time of conversion .

The reasoning behind this was that the costs incurred were costs of the  ‘new schools’ board directors/ governors, and not of the Council.

Converter academies can therefore reclaim VAT relating to services purchased. Using section 33 of the VAT claim.

 Claim submissions are within four years of incurring VAT and are made when the school  has converted and is  open.
