VAT on rental expenses


Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Sorry for this question as 99.9% sure the answer is no, but for Joe Bloggs who has 1 rental property alongisde salaried income so not a VAT sole trader, is the VAT charged on his management fee or any R&M costs he may incur allowable and includable when calculating his total expenses? I would really appreciate if anyone could point in the direction of legislation of HMRC guidance backing up any reply.

Thanks all

If he's not VAT registered, and not required to be VAT registered, and isn't going to become VAT registered, then ignore VAT entirely and use the gross figure, VAT is just a part of the cost.
