    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.
