Did you know that you could recover the standard rate VAT you pay on professional fees on your new-build residential schemes? This is achieved by establishing a non-VAT grouped, wholly controlled subsidiary company to act as a design and build company (D&B Co). D&B Co would be able to reclaim input tax on 20% VAT-rated professional fees and re-charge them to you at zero rate.
In this seminar we will explore a wide range of matters relating to the set up and operation of a D&B Co.
