I'm purchasing a new Renault Zoe. The government grant is itemised on the invoice as £2,500. I was expecting to get the full £3,000 grant. The Renault sales team are telling me that the grant is subject to VAT (at 20%), hence why it's just £2,500. Has anyone else experienced the same thing? I want to make sure I'm not being diddled!

Depends where it's itemised on the invoice I guess - before or after the VAT line?

The quick answer is it's £3,000 off the price including VAT.

So what is the full price and what are you paying after the grant?

It's listed before the VAT line. The invoice shows the vehicle price, then takes off the grant (itemised as £2,500), then adds extras (such as metallic paint, accessory pack, manufacturer delivery charge), sub-total, then adds VAT at 20%, and adds first registration fee to get the invoice total.

It's making my head hurt trying to work out if I've got the full £3K off!!

That makes sense then.

It’s £2,500 net, which rolls out to £3,000 gross discount after VAT.

VAT I actually payable on the car irrespective of the grant. Just the way they show it on the invoice.
