    VAT on extensions

    VAT on extensions 14th Aug 07 at 11:44 AM
    My father was ill and we have planning permission to build an extension to my parents house. This is a 3-bed, kitchen, living room... extension. Essentially it's a new house but passed as an extension due to the fact we needed a connecting door (aged parents, care needed etc).

    As I understand it, even though it's effectively a new house (as big if not bigger than the existing building), it's still subject to VAT. Am I right or can it be saved in any way?

    Any help/advice much appreciated.
