I run a relatively small web development business and was wondering if anyone here knows anything about VAT as I am looking to buy a new computer to go to clients with as currently I don't have a mobile computer. I'm currently thinking about a Dell XPS15 or a Surface Laptop. These are quite expensive computers so being able to reduce the cost a bit would help quite a lot. How do I go about claiming VAT from these as they will be used for business? I've looked around at an income calculator and it's definitely a large saving. Also, I'm looking for something between 13" and 15" that's light and powerful - any suggestions other than Dell and Microsoft's offerings?

You can only reclaim VAT for your business purchases if your business is VAT registered - in which case your business must already have personnel or accountants familiar with VAT. If your business is not already VAT registered then I have no doubt that the possible savings on a laptop would not justify becoming so.
