VAT Question of the Week: Fitted Furniture & Reduced Rate Building Work
VQOTW: Fitted Furniture & Reduced Rate Building Work | 1st December 2020
My client specialises in bespoke joinery. He has worked on a lot of new houses but has now been asked to work on the renovation of an old country house that has been empty for many years. He will be supplying and fitting replacement sash windows, a staircase and also some fitted furniture in bedrooms and dressing rooms.
I am aware of the reduced rate of 5% for renovations to empty residential properties but something is troubling me about fitted furniture, as he has to charge VAT on this in new build houses.
Is it the same for renovations and conversions? Click here to find out more.
