      Does Sky Bill include VAT

      Hi
      I am self-employed and would like to claim back the VAT on my phone bills. On-line bills do not show VAT number?
      Does anyone know if the subscriptions and call charges include VAT./
      Thanks
      Allison

      afaik You will have to request a Paper VAT Bill from Sky, I remember someone else asked ages ago and that was the only way possible at that time.

      I'm not sure on phone calls but I know Sky Broadband is registered in Luxembourg, I seem to think Sky Talk is the same, so you pay Luxembourg VAT and I don't know if you can claim that back.

      That sounds a bit dodgy. What's their rate of VAT?

      Sky are not alone in charging Luxembourg VAT rates. eBay is the same and AFAIK you can claim it back the same as you can UK VAT.

      Re: Does Sky Bill include VAT

      but then terms and conditions of sky talk say you can only use it for private domestic use, so it is very doubtful they'll provide you with a vat receipt. In fact, they won't

      Send them an e-mail just in case, though

      ^^^ True, and I could be wrong about claiming back Luxembourg VAT. I noticed eBay's policy is that you apply for exemption from the VAT charge with your UK VAT number when you register as a business seller. As Ice100k says, this will not apply with Sky as a domestic service.
