Claim Your VAT Back on Self Build New Houses and Conversions in Bognor Regis

I am a professional accountant offering a VAT specialist service for the reclamation of vat on newbuilds and conversions.  The Government scheme ‘VAT Refunds for DIY Housebuilders VAT431nb and VAT431c’ enables an individual that is creating a qualifying new residence for his own use or a family member’s use, to qualify for zero/reduced rating of vat. The vat incurred on materials incorporated in the build and reduced rated labour can be reclaimed from HMRC. My aim is to help you maximise the VAT refund received and remove the paperwork stress from your project. I can liaise directly with your contractors if needed.

Eligible Projects

Self-build VAT claims are usually allowed on the following projects where a residential dwelling has been created that is to be used by you or your relatives as a family home:

  • A new build dwelling
  • Non residential property conversions  eg barn or stable to form a new dwelling
  • Business premises conversions to new dwelling
  • Conversions of dwellings that have not been lived in for 10 years
  • Building or converting one of the above for use as your holiday home

How To Claim a VAT Refund

I have prepared hundreds of VAT refund claims over the last 18 years, two of them being for my own projects. I have over 35 year’s experience in various accounting roles in both Public Practice and Industry, dealing with VAT issues every day. I am a fellow member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants

Combining my skills in both areas enables me to provide a service completing the VAT Refund Scheme Claim Forms for Self-Builders and Converters. Helping you secure the VAT refund you are eligible to receive.

    Dr S from Buckinghamshire received a refund of £13k in Feb 2012

    I'm a self builder in Buckinghamshire. 'Jayne helped us do the accounts for our second self-build project. With a full time job and two small children her services were invaluable as we tried to juggle the million things that needed to be done - she advised us throughout the project and ultimately saved us much more than her fee. She communicated quickly and handled HMRC on our behalf with great patience. We've just got planning permission for our final self-build and will definitely be using Jayne's service from the outset.'

    Mr R from Hampshire received a refund of £122k in Jan 2012

    “We worked with Jayne from the start of our self-build project and I couldn’t recommend her services highly enough. This is a complex and confusing area of the build to manage and one where mistakes directly cost you money. Jayne was always on hand and no question was ever too much trouble. The money that Jayne saved us was far in excess of the cost of her services.”

    Ms L from London received a refund of £34k in Aug 2012

    I used the services of Jayne Daniel to recover a substantial overpayment of VAT from a building contractor with whom relations were strained.  I found Jayne to be a very skilled negotiator in dealing with the contractor and HMRC and a very satisfactory settlement was agreed within a short time frame. The service I received was excellent and I would not hesitate to engage her again.

    Mr F from Sheffield received a refund of £14k in Aug 2012

    I would like to recommend the services of Jayne Daniel at the above named business.. As I reached the end of my own self-build project I began to prepare the forms and documents necessary to reclaim the VAT. It quickly became obvious that this had to be done in the correct manner as you only get one chance to apply. This also comes at a time when I was tired after building my own home and was busy with furnishing, unpacking and finishing off the last details. Jayne explained the process in simple terms, completed the forms, sorted out all the invoices into the correct order and sent it all off to the VAT office. She dealt efficiently with any enquiries and made the whole process easy. The payment was made very promptly and it was a pleasure to work with Jayne at all times. I would wholeheartedly recommend the services of Jayne Daniel to all self-builders at the end of their projects.
