The DIY house builder's scheme


A DIY house builder is allowed to reclaim VAT on much of the cost of self-building a new dwelling.  However some items are not recoverable, and documentation must be meticulous.

This course will teach you where VAT is (and is not) recoverable, and how to administer the claim to minimise the possibility of HMRC queries and delays
