I know that I can offset some of the changes I am making to our home against my income tax, such as a new more efficient boiler.
I believe that I can also off set the cost of installing double glazed windows (materials) only of course but ONLY if I have an invoice that charges the full rate VAT and not the reduced rate.
Can anyone confirm that my understanding, that I must pay the full rate VAT in order to offset part of the cost against my income tax, is correct, please?
Thanks as always
The rates of vat can differ depending upon the work being done, but the works need to be done by a registered installer to qualify for the recuctions.
There is a limit per petson.
the most important thing is a FRENCH registered business facture for the supply and installation and be aware the reduction will not be done until next year - ie you will declare/add the factures to your declaration des revenues next May
The rules may have changed since we did this - we offset using the reduced VAT we’d paid. Best to go to your hotel des impots for proper advice.
