    VAT on professional fees - commercial to residential planning application

    Evening all,

    We have recently submitted a planning application to convert a small commercial unit in a couple of new apartments. As I understand it the building work will be zero-rated for VAT as we are creating dwellings were none were previously.

    The planners have requested an Air Quality and Noise Assessment for the site and I just wanted to confirm if I could zero-rate the VAT invoice?

    I suspect not having read the gov site but I'm hoping that I'm missing something...

    Thanks in advance for your advice

    VAT is chargeable by the company providing service to you. The VAT charge is not decided by you.

    You have to register as developer with the HMRC VAT office so that you can claim back VAT paid to the company for the building work and supply of building materials. VAT paid for professional fees to architects and surveyors are not claimable.

      There are two types of expenses allowable for tax for a landlord, operational and capital.
      Operational expenses are allowed against income and capital expenses deducted from any capital gain for CGT on disposal.

      A lot of the expenses that you have listed would be at least partially...

      Hi Guys,

      My wife and myself bought a property in December 2018. It needed repairs and other work such as:

      1) A New roof (Tiles felt and battens) due to porous tiles
      2) A new kitchen as it was in a bad state of repair and no one would spruce it up
      3) A new bathroom,...

      Hi

      My main residence is unencumbered. I am thinking ahead (with the thought of the 7 year rule on inheritance tax).

      If I gift my son 50% of my property now - would I still be OK to live in the house?

      Would there be any immediate tax consequences of gifting him...

      That's another reason to use a trust,
      The trust becomes the beneficial owner of the property, so it moves out of your estate for income tax purposes (over seven years).

      You and your son would be the beneficiaries of the trust, so should anything happen to either of you, the trust...

      Thanks JP. I am thinking of gifting him 50%, he will still be living with me for a few years.

      My biggest concern is that if he marries and then divorces etc - how that would affect me!...

      Hi

      We are considering selling our second home and wonder if anyone can help.

      Background: My husband bought the home in 1988 for £44,000. Over the years it has been rented out for 1 year, empty for 2 years and rented out again for the last 3 years. Up until 3 years ago it...

      Your main residence is the place that you live. If you live in more than one place, you need to tell HMRC which is your primary residence and update them if it changes.
      Most people only have one residence, so it's just a matter of fact.
      Based on what you posted, it was your main residence...
