If you are renovating an unoccupied property, it might be possible for you to benefit from reduced rate VAT on eligible services associated with the renovation.
In order to be considered, a property must have been empty for at least two years immediately prior to the commencement of renovation works.
HMRC guidance indicates that a letter from the Local Authority confirming that a property has been unoccupied for the qualifying period is normally acceptable.
If you are claiming a Council Tax exemption on the basis that your property is undergoing, or is about to undergo, significant renovation, please contact us using the form below:
Please note that we cannot provide advice on what constitutes an eligible service nor confirm that reduced rate VAT applies to any specific property, as these are both matters for HMRC to determine.
