0% VAT on External Wall Insulation

In a bid to reduce the cost on Energy Saving Materials, the UK Government has announced that you do not need to pay VAT on external wall insulation if you use a VAT registered installer. This came into play from April 1st 2022.

This month’s blog at DP Insulation Render provides information about the 0% VAT External Wall Insulation scheme. For more, call us in Sheffield on 0114 244 4227.

What Does this Mean?

0% VAT will significantly lower the cost of installing External Wall Insulation. This will save you money in both the short and long run. You will still need to pay 20% on the goods, but there will be no VAT on the labour.

Installing EWI can greatly reduce your energy bills. It can typically reduce your heating bill by up to 50%. As energy prices rise, your yearly savings will increase.

Energy Poverty

‘Energy poverty’ is when someone struggles to keep their home warm enough. This may be for a number of reasons. Due to the rising energy bills, more people are starting to fall into energy poverty.

At DP Insulation Render, we can help homeowners save £000s on energy bills.

How Long is this Valid?

The UK Government has advised that this measure will be in place for the next 5 years. After this, there will be a reduced VAT rate of 5%.

How to Find a Trusted Installer

Not all External Wall Insulation installers are VAT registered. However, it is rare to come across full-time installers that don’t have to charge VAT. At DP Insulation Render, we are trusted and approved local EWI installers.
