HMRC Won’t Grant A Refund Of VAT Due To You Or Your Business?
Why Would HMRC Reject A Claim For Input VAT?

VAT invoices are required to comply with section 14 of the Value Added Tax Regulations 1995. This states that all VAT invoices should state certain information. Where VAT invoices do not contain all of the required information, HMRC may state that they are not valid VAT invoices. This may result in a rejection of the paperwork and any VAT claim made.
Questions Over The Validity Of Documents
Where HMRC have questions over the validity of documents, they may refuse to accept a claim. This can disallow any input tax in your VAT return. HMRC could have concerns with documents your business have put together, or it could be your supplier documents they are concerned about. HMRC should set out why any VAT claim has been disallowed. However it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. Concerns about use of invalid documents could become very serious very quickly. This is especially important in relation to any instances of Missing Trader Intra-Community Fraud Or ‘MTIC‘.
