Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Brilliant thanks very much
could I ask another question on this - looking at the sales details there remains an element of commercial office on the new build and it does say " the property is elected for VAT "
if this is the case is there a simple "un electing it " or am I just wishful thinking
It would appear to be covered by the second condition viz:
'it can be used independently of any other property, including businesses'
However, I would be inclined to cross examine the vendor on exactly what is meant by 'elected for VAT' In certain circumstances this is possible. It is equally possible that purchasers not registered for VAT will simply walk away rather than pay an extra 20% on the purchase price!
Thank you for your support.
