In the 2022 Spring Statement, the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced that from 1st April 2022, the rate of VAT on the installation of domestic air conditioning systems is to be reduced to 0%.
This reduction replaces the previously reduced rate of 5% and the previous “social conditions” and “60% test” requirements no longer apply.
This is great news. It will enable more homeowners to install energy-saving solutions as part of the Government’s wider initiatives to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions in homes across the country.
Full details on the introduction of 0% VAT on the installation of energy-saving materials can be found on HMRC’s website, VAT Notice 708/6, Clause 2.18.
Now that it has been confirmed that the installation of domestic air conditioning systems is included in the 0% VAT scheme, there is no better time to install air conditioning in your home.
The fact that air conditioning systems can heat and cool, teamed with the savings you can make on energy bills, makes them one of the cheapest ways to keep your home at an optimum temperature.
