French to English translations [PRO]
Law/Patents - Real Estate / deed of sale
French term or phrase: sur option
The deed of sale includes a number of committments made by the purchaser, including an undertaking to "poursuivre [l'exploitation de l'immeuble] dans le cadre d’une activité locative, assujettie à la taxe sur la valeur ajoutée sur option".

How can the payment of VAT be 'at their option' or 'optional'?

Thank you.
