Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

Please clarify for me

Is the timber frame going to be used for a new build dwelling, i.e. property built from scratch or an add on to existing building.

Many thanks
Customer reply replied 1 year ago.

Yes the property is built from scratch, it could be a sole place of residence, social housing and various accommodation that are zero rated.

Thank you for your reply.

These are the rules -

New build homes are zero rated and do not attract VAT. If your supplier supplies and erects the timber frame house (either a kit or a custom design) then they would do not charge VAT. If they supply the timber frames but do not erect them on site then they must charge VAT but you will be able to claim back that VAT from HMRC within a three month period once a completion certificate has been obtained.


If you are supplying kit only and not erecting the property, then VAT is chargeable at standard rate.

There is some useful information here
