    I purchased a new build property with a VAT registered company. I am not VAT registered or a company.

    I have told them to reimburse me with the cost of the full kitchen. For arguments sake, 2,400 (incl VAT). The reimbursement is excl VAT 2,000. 

    Is this correct? Should I be reimbursed incl or excl VAT? 


    I am getting my kitchen from a totally different company (separate from the new build trader). So they are reimbursing me the cost it would have been for the kitchen.

    How much the builder pays you is not a VAT issue as such, it is a matter between you and them. If there is something contractually requiring them to meet your costs, then your costs are the £2,400.

    But, if the builder had subcontracted the kitchen fitting to the company you have found before selling the house to you, they could have reclaimed the £400 VAT from HMRC. Therefore they might only be prepared to pay you the amount that it would have cost them to have arranged the work – i.e. £2,000.
