Hi All I am a self employed (sole trader) and we need a camper to use as a mobile office while we are out and about at shows or events. We have found a suitable model, we were thinking of a Autocruise Rhythm Sport or something very similar. (This is a Boxer 335 Peugeot Panel Van base) I intend to kit it out with a couple of laptops, printer, WIFI and 3g etc so that I can still run my mail order business when away from home. I have been told that if the vehicle is a commercial vehicle then I can claim back the VAT on a new purchase as I am VAT registered and also as its a business expense I wont pay income tax on the purchase cost... (I think I read or heard that somehow you have to clam this back in stages as far as tax goes as the vehicle depreciates in value)... Has anyone bought a camper through thier buisiness before or could anyone give me any advice, trying to get any info out of HMRC is very difficult they are very unhelpful at out local offices they just say "look it up on the website" but I cant understand it all theres too much information. We were looking at buying used originally but if I can claim the VAT back and also the income tax I would have paid on the cost the savings would allow us to buy new... I havent bought a vehicle through my business before so dont really know whats what... Thanks for reading.
