VAT Reclaim – VAT rate history

Category: Essential information December 20th, 2012 by mbc

So at last I’m looking at the VAT reclaim on the barn again. I think the last time I seriously discussed it here was back in 2009 when I very foolishly stated ‘My own VAT reclaim will be due soon – by early Summer at the latest‘ — ahhhh, the innocence of my (relative) youth!

The first thing I was struggling to get straight was what the VAT rate has been over the period of the conversion. So here’s a summary I assembled from across the web, in reverse chronological order:

  • On 4 January 2011 VAT was raised to 20%
  • On 1 January 2010 VAT returned to 17.5%
  • On 1 December 2008 VAT was reduced to 15% temporarily
  • In 1991 VAT rose to 17.5%
  • In 1979 VAT was consolidated to a single rate of 15%

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…
