    Hi

    I know that VAT is to be charged at 5% for domestic but is it the normal 20% on commercial installations?

    I was seeking opinion.

    My accountant has told me that we have to charge 20% for commercial installations

    I thought charities were charged at 20% yet they claimed it all back?

    Happy to stand corrected - I thought it was 5% but I haven't done, thought I'd read recently it was 5% but could be making it up!!

    Rinf HMRC and check with them - I'd value their advice on VAT rates more than I'd value mine!!

    Thought 5% was the VAT you paid for your electricity/gas you buy from your supplier?
