VAT on UK petrol - possible to claim

This may sound like a crazy question, but is it possible to claim the VAT on things such as car rental and petrol purchases when in the UK?

Re: VAT on UK petrol - possible to claim

If you are a business, and the purchase is entirely for business reasons, and the laws governing your business allow, then you can claim the VAT component of petrol back. Or possibly half of it, if there's mixed personal/business use.

Otherwise, forget it.

Re: VAT on UK petrol - possible to claim

Thank you for the feedback ... most helpful and at the same time disappointing.

Oh well back to drawing board.
