VAT on the development of a residential property

Client has inherited a derelict property which he wishes to demolish and build a new house to rent.

Didn't find your answer?

I act for an individual who has inherited a derelict property which he wishes to demolish and replace with a new house which, on completion, he will rent out as a private residence. I understand that most of the building cost would normally be zero rated but I would like to confirm that the fact that the property will remain in my client's ownership as an investment will not jeapordise the zero rated status of the build.

The investment arrangement will not jeopardise zero-rating.
Do make sure the planning permission explicitly shows that the existing structure will be demolished; otherwise the zero-rating will be at risk.
