Building a New Home and VAT

Building a New Home and VAT

You can apply for a VAT refund on building materials and services if you are:
  • building a new home
  • converting a property into a home
  • building a non-profit communal residence - eg a hospice
  • building a property for a charity
The building work and materials have to qualify and you must apply to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) within 3 months of completing the work.
 
There is a separate guide to VAT if you are working in the construction industry.
