Divisional registration: inter-divisional supplies

Because the divisions remain part of a single legal entity (ie the corporate body), any supplies of goods or services between divisions of the same corporate body are intra-company supplies and consequently are outside the scope of VAT. As a result, no tax should be accounted for on such supplies and no VAT invoices should be raised.
