If we were to import goods from the EU on behalf of a Lease company (who are the legal owners of the goods), should the import paperwork detail the Lease company as the Importer on Record or ourselves? If the Latter, would this mean we are not permitted to reclaim the VAT?

Hi
The owner of the goods would need to be the importer of record as it would be them who would be entitled to any Vat recovery.
Thankyou.
Regards.

Thank you for confirming this, we can go back to the Lease company and instruct them, that they'll need to be the Importer on record, thank you for your help.
