How does it work with the insurance of VAT and BPM?

Often company cars and private cars used for business purposes can be insured excluding VAT on a delivery van insurance. Company cars that are bought (new) after 1 July 2005 can in many cases also be insured exclusive of BPM. This results in a considerably lower premium because the insurance company assumes a lower value.

This means that the insurance company will also pay out exclusive VAT and/or BPM in the event of a claim.

When can I deduct VAT?

For example, you can deduct VAT on the (purchase of a) business car of your own company. When making a comparison, you will be asked whether you can deduct VAT. When you answer 'yes' to this question, the original catalogue value (and therefore the insured value) is automatically reduced by the VAT. You will then not have to pay any premium over the VAT amount. Naturally, any damage compensation will also be paid exclusive of VAT. As a private person, you cannot, in principle, offset VAT.

VAT is not charged on the insurance premium but insurance premium tax is. The insurance tax you have to pay cannot be deducted.
