No Deduction for VAT on Uncompleted Purchase of Real Estate

  • The case involves whether the appellant is entitled to a deduction for VAT on the purchase of a property.
  • The property transaction was not completed, so the appellant did not acquire ownership rights over the property.
  • As a result, the appellant is not entitled to deduct the invoiced VAT on the purchase price.
  • The Court of Appeals upheld the lower court’s ruling that denied the appellant’s claim for VAT deduction.
  • The reference is to Section 37, paragraph 1 of the VAT Act.
  • The editorial note mentions the previous instance and the lower court’s case number.
