VAT is built into the system by expense type and where the cost is incurred
The University has taken the decision not to record or reclaim VAT for expenses from eExpenses. However, the information is being collected so that analysis can be done to consider changing in the future. Buying an item and claiming it back via expenses, rather than raising a purchase order (PO) in advance to buy it, may cost your department more money.
Claims will be returned if a PO is more appropriate
