VAT on private fees

I am confused about whether we should be charging insurance companies VAT on personal medical attendant reports for life insurance proposals. Ours is a VAT-registered practice.

The practice does not have to add VAT to these fees.

Normally, where the principal purpose of the service is not aimed at the protection, maintenance or restoration of the health of an individual, but is providing necessary information to enable a third party to make a decision, such a service is one on which a VAT-registered practice should charge the tax.

However, reports on patients applying for life insurance are covered by a current exemption from VAT.
