Fleming (trading as Bodycraft) v Revenue and Customs Commissioners; Conde Nast Publications Ltd v Revenue and Customs Commissioners – WLR Daily

Posted January 24th, 2008 in EC law, law reports, retrospectivity, time limits, VAT by sally

Fleming (trading as Bodycraft) v Revenue and Customs Commissioners; Conde Nast Publications Ltd v Revenue and Customs Commissioners [2008] UKHL 2; [2008] WLR (D) 5

“The absence of a transitional period when the legislature introduced a retrospective time limit within which value added taxpayers could make a claim for overpaid input tax amounted to a breach of European Community law. Therefore the time limit had to be disapplied in respect of those who had accrued rights when the retrospective time limit was introduced, and in all the circumstances it was for the legislature and not the court to introduce an adequate transitional period.”
