Housing providers should consider acting now to benefit from the current reduced rate VAT treatment of the installation of energy-saving materials. The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has decided that the UK’s blanket application of the reduced rate to all housing is illegal. According to EU VAT rules, the reduced rate should apply to social housing only. HMRC has stated that the current legislation will not be amended before the Finance Act 2016 – this still gives housing providers and their residents some time to benefit from the current reduced VAT rate before the VAT rate may be increased to 20%.
