Now, it’s not impossible to see the issue being sorted out.
Brexiteers like Boris Johnson, David Davis and Michael Gove, not to mention all their little mini mes, keep on saying the UK’s transition out of the EU will ultimately be good for business and the economy.
Bureaucratic headaches and VAT go together like the tea and sympathy most of the finance people having to deal with the levy feel probably they need after a hard week at it.
This will inevitably create horrible bureaucratic problems, adding to those being created by the UK coming out of the world’s biggest single market.
Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton 'avoided' paying VAT on his £16.5million private jet, the Paradise Papers have revealed.
The 32-year-old, who won his fourth world title last week, received a £3.3million refund for the Bombardier Challenger 605, which was imported into the Isle of Man.
They said his practice was to rely on professional advice, and he was not concerned with day-to-day management of his business, according to investigators working for the France 2 TV Channel.
Hamilton set up another Isle of Man company to buy a £1.5m motorhome that he used at racetracks, and no VAT appears to have been paid on that purchase either.
