What is the value of a car sold by a dealer where the dealer offers on over-allowance on the customer part-ex vehicle?
The dealership contended the over-allowance constituted a discount against the value of new car, i.e. reducing the consideration for VAT purposes.
The Tribunal found that over-allowance was in respect of the part-ex vehicle. No discount was offered on the vehicle sale and as such VAT was due on the agreed sale price.
