If you or the owner of the vehicle are registered for VAT purposes and the vehicle is used for business purposes, the VAT content of the repair bill must be paid by you, not your insurer, when you collect your vehicle.

The VAT can then be set against your output tax and recovered in the normal way through your VAT return. If you are not registered for VAT or if the vehicle is not used for business, your insurer will accept responsibility for the full amount, less any contributions such as excess and betterment.
