    Hi Foxy,

    I agree with Debsy. Husband can not claim VAT back for the tools that he bought as he is not VAT registered.

    He can claim then as a tax deductible expense as I assume that they are essential for his job and the employer does not provide them. I would write to the tax office, enclosing photocopies of any receipts, and he should receive a repayment of tax (depending on when he bought them.)
