Default claiming vat on rental income

My UK letting agent is adding 20% VAT to the amount of commission they charge me for letting out my UK property.
Can anybody please clarify whether I can reclaim this VAT or stop the letting agent from doing this?
I live outside Europe.
Any help much appreciated.

Welcome to BE Russell.

As you haven't said which country you are living in...I think you would be best posting your questions in our Moving Back To The UK Forum...

Moving back to the UK - British Expats

The regulars in that forum will help you if they can.

Good luck.

You can't reclaim the VAT, nor can you stop your agent charging it.

See here. The place of supply of property services is where the property is located. As both the supplier and the place of supply are in the UK, UK VAT rules apply, which means VAT is charged.

The VAT on the fee should be tax-deductible though.
