Exempt supplies are supplies of goods or services which are exempted from VAT i.e. no VAT is charged on supply of such goods. On the other hand, Input Vat deduction will not be allowed to the business supplying exempt supplies.
Let us understand this with an example.
Abdul LLP has paid VAT at 5% on the purchase of raw materials and finished goods produced using raw materials are exempted from the VAT. In this case, Abdul LLP will not be allowed to recover 5% Input VAT paid on purchase and it should be treated as a cost of the product.
The following are the 2 things to remember if you are making exempt supplies
No VAT will be charged on the supply
Inward Supply (used in supplying finished product or service which is exempt)
No Input VAT deduction
