Anyone know why the revenue bother with introducing a reduced rate of VAT for conversions, when the self builder can reclaim it anyway?
Factory, turnkey converted to house, builder does everything and charges 5%, householder reclaims 5%
Factory, turnkey demolished and rebuilt to house, builder does everything and charges 0%
If HMRC's financial position is the same at the end of these two operations, why did they bother? Are there some situations wih a conversion where it is not possible to reclaim the VAT and hence HMRC does make a "profit"?
