Value of Deemed Supply in VAT
The value of goods or services which are purchased to make Taxable Supplies but are actually used for making deemed supplies, will be equal to the total cost incurred by the taxable person to make this a deemed supply of goods or Services. In other words, the actual inward cost of deemed supplies will be considered as a value on which VAT should be paid.
For example, Ali Spares Ltd purchased 15 computers for AED 30,000/- and paid VAT of AED 1,500/-. Ali Spares Ltd availed Input Tax Credit of AED 1,500/-.
Out of these 15 computers, 14 were used for maintaining the records and accounts of the business and 1 was used for personal purpose.
The value of 1 computer which was used for the non-business purpose will be the actual cost incurred i.e. 2,000 AED. Accordingly, Ali Spares Ltd will be liable to pay VAT of AED 100 (2,000 * 5 / 100).
Date or Time of Deemed Supplies in VAT
Time of supply refers to the time when output VAT on deemed supplies is required to be paid. The date of deemed supply of goods or services is the actual date of their supply, disposal, change of usage or the date of Deregistration.
On 1st February 2018 Ali Spares Ltd purchased 15 computers for AED 30,000/- and paid VAT of AED 1,500/-. Ali Spares Ltd availed Input Tax Credit of AED 1,500/-.
Out of These 15 computers, 1 was put into personal usage on 15th March, 2018.
Here, the time of deemed supply will be 15th March and accordingly, Ali Spares Ltd is liable to pay VAT while filing March month’s VAT return.
Tax Invoice for VAT Deemed Supplies
Although VAT deemed supplies are not actual supplies made by the taxable person, still it requires you to issue a tax invoice or to keep sufficient records in books for making deemed supplies. The registered business making a VAT deemed supply should issue an original Tax Invoice and deliver it to a recipient of goods or services, if available. This will be applicable to deemed supplies like business assets supplied without consideration, free samples, gifts etc.
If the actual recipient of goods or services is not available, you need to keep the records for making deemed supplies. Generally, the records of books to account for the deemed supplies and VAT liability on such supplies will be sufficient here. This will be applicable to the deemed supply of business assets used for the non-business purpose.
