Zero-rating the construction of buildings: about this section
This section provides guidance on when services supplied in the course of the construction of a building can be zero-rated.
The zero rate applies to services supplied in the course of constructing buildings that are:
- ‘designed as a dwelling or number of dwellings’ (VCONST14100)
- intended for use solely for a ‘relevant residential purpose’ (VCONST15000)
- intended for use solely for a ‘relevant charitable purpose’ (VCONST16000).
There are occasions when the construction of a building may be apportioned between what is zero-rated and what must be standard-rated (VCONST02800).
