RESPONSIBILITIES - DEPARTMENT
  • Check award documentation to see if VAT is or is not allowable.
    • For any awards from NIH or other DHHS agencies (CDC, HRSA, etc.), the VAT would not be allowed because the foreign component of those awards is significant. VAT would need to be paid from non-sponsored funds. See sample NIH language below:
    • Customs and Import Duties: Allowable under grants to domestic organizations when performance will take place entirely within the United States, its possessions, or its territories, or when foreign involvement in the project is incidental to the overall grant-supported project. Charges may include consular fees, customs surtaxes, value-added taxes, and other related charges. Consular fees, customs surtaxes, value-added taxes, and other related charges are unallowable on foreign grants or the foreign component of a domestic grant.

  • Review prior purchases that include VAT and transfer any unallowed VAT off of the grant.
  • Since OMB does not address these particular taxes, for other federal sponsors, review the particular terms and conditions to see if VAT is addressed. If no, then apply the general principles of allowability: reasonable, allocable, and consistent treatment.
