VAT incurred on professional fees that relates to residential developments will likely represent a real cost for housing associations. However, where a development is delivered through a development company operating under a design and build agreement (i.e. acting as a ‘D&B Co’), these VAT costs can be mitigated.
This seminar will explore how housing associations can benefit from establishing a D&B Co to deliver housing in a tax efficient manner. We will cover a wide range of matters relating to the setup and operation of the entity and how the design and build model can provide efficiencies in the sector.
