How to claim
To claim back VAT on your self-build expenses, you have to fill in the right form.
If your home was a brand new property from scratch, fill in the claim form for new houses.
If it was a conversion of an existing property, fill in the claim form for conversions.
Both forms include guidance notes which tell you how to work out your VAT and where to send the form to.
Along with the form, you also need to send:
- bank details (so you can be paid)
- the planning permission
- proof your building work has finished (like a letter from your local council)
- a full set of building plans
- the invoices
- bills and any credit notes
