Repayment of input tax: How is the restored amount of input tax calculated?
The amount of input tax to be restored is calculated in the following way:
- amount of payment made after repaying input tax;
- x input tax repaid;
- ÷ outstanding amount at the date when input tax repaid.
ExampleSupply received £1000.00 plus £175.00 VAT - total £1175.00.
By the time of the relevant date the recipient of the supply has only paid £500.00.
Unpaid amount = £1175.00 - £500.00 = £675.00.
- if business originally entitled to deduct £175.00
£175.00 x 675.00/1175.00 = £100.53.
- if business originally entitled to deduct 50% of the VAT charged (£87.50)
£87.50 x 675.00/1175.00 = £50.26.If the recipient of the supply paid the supplier a further £200, after having repaid input tax, the following amounts would be restored:
- 200 x 100.53 ÷ 675 = 29.78;
- 200 x 50.26 ÷ 675 = 14.89.
