We're being posted to Germany this month and I have a couple of questions that I'd like a bit of advice on please... or even if I can be pointed in the right direction, that'd be great. - Can we claim back the VAT on the fees the letting agent we use will charge us? We have filled NRL1 forms in for the landlord tax which is all sorted but the estate agent also charges VAT (@ 20%) on their fees. - Someone mentioned that we can claim back the initial letting set-up fee due to the posting. It's going to be a significant amount of money as they charge a month's rent plus VAT. I hadn't heard about this one but if it exists, how do I go about claiming it? Many thanks in advance for your responses.
