Research Project VAT Checking

Guidance to help you work out the VAT status of a research project.

We use a web-based Research Liability Tool (RLT) for checking VAT on a research project. The system has been developed by KPMG as a guide to determining the correct VAT status of a research project.

Based on your responses to a series of questions, RLT will return a suggested treatment for both VAT and Corporate Tax purposes. RLT is in accordance with current tax law, HMRC guidelines, and Charity Commission guidance but relies on the accuracy of your responses.
