As with all VAT situations, UK law is derived from broad European principles, upon which the domestic VAT legislation of all the EU member states is based. In the UK’s case, this has to be interpreted on top of centuries-old UK land law. It can be an uneasy combination. In addition, you will commonly find different treatments in Scotland.
Yes, there is, but we stress that it is very broad. In general, land and property transactions are exempt from VAT unless they are specifically identified as being standard, reduced or zero-rated.
A ‘major interest’ refers to either a freehold sale or a lease for a term exceeding 21 years. The term ‘new’, for VAT purposes, refers to commercial buildings less than 3 years old.
Again, as before, the letting of property is primarily exempt from VAT. This applies to both commercial and domestic lettings. However there is a special facility available for commercial letting called the ‘option to tax’. In effect, by adhering to certain conditions, you can elect to waive the exemption that would normally apply to your rents and opt to charge VAT instead.
Over the years, HMRC have brought in ever-more complex anti-avoidance legislation, which may block your option to tax in some circumstances. The consequences could be significant in terms of VAT costs which you had not anticipated.
