Newnham College, Cambridge University v Revenue & Customs Commissioners [2006] EWCA Civ 285

The power to allow a right of option to taxation conferred by Art 13C(a) of the Sixth Council Directive 77/388 was a power only exercisable in cases of letting or leasing of immovable property and the provisions of Sched 10 of the Value Added Tax Act 1994, which were enacted pursuant to that power, had to be interpreted with that in mind. Therefore the meaning to be given to occupy and occupation in Sched 10 required more than a right to use the land and required some degree of control over what others who were not also in occupation could do on the land.
