So, a builder owns a limited company. Vat registered.
He wants to build a house to rent out personally.
So, if he built it himself (ie not through company)
A) as he intends to rent it out would this fall fowl of the vat reclaim on self build ie not allowed to reclaim vat on the build? (ie it says if the building is built by a landlord then vat may not be recovered).
B) if he built it through the company, claimed the vat in normal way, then company charges him market value for the house, Can the company zero-rate the invoice to the director even though the director will be renting it out?
Many thanks in advance
