SCS The taxpayer, a German subsidiary of a UK bank, carried on a banking and leasing business in Germany. It did not have a place of establishment in the UK. It was registered in the UK for VAT as a non-established taxable person. It bought cars in the UK from an unconnected seller, and leased the cars back to the same group, with a put option requiring the cars to be bought back later. It paid VAT on the purchases but did not charge VAT on the leases. Under UK legislation the leases were treated as supplies made in Germany, and not subject to VAT in the UK, whereas under German law, having regard to the particular terms of the leases, they were treated as supplies made in the UK and therefore not subject to VAT in Germany. On the exercise of the put option, UK VAT was charged on the sale, but the taxpayer sought to deduct the input tax incurred on the purchase.
