Institute demands VAT exemption on medical reports

VAT exemption should apply by default, says ICAEW

While the British Medical Association has reminded all dispensing GPs in
England and Wales to register for VAT, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in
England and Wales (ICAEW) has called for medical reports and certificates of
fitness to be treated as VAT exempt when new rules come into force on 1 April.

The ICAEW said, in response to a government consultation paper, that VAT
exemption should apply by default to most medical services including
pre-employment medicals, doctorupdate.net reported.

Standard VAT rating should only apply to cases such as medicals for insurance
or in connection with personal injury or litigation, the institute added.
