So purchasing a new build house and intending using a 3rd party to supply the laminate flooring (carpets always standard rated) the question is the builder will allow the flooring company to measure before the house is "completed" but will only allow the laying of it once the new build is handed over to the purchaser. I have read the vat guidance but am seeking clarity as some flooring businnesses say they will zero rate while others say it may be zero rated othyers say standard! If the builder provides the flooring then yes it would be zero rated.
Guidance talks about completion but is the property actually "complete" without any flooring?
Advice would be greatly appreciated.
