Self Build VAT Reclaim Service

Welcome to Claim It Back VAT Refunds. We are a family run company based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire that specialise in VAT reclaims for self build clients who have decided to create their dream home, be it a new build or conversion.


One of the advantages of building or converting your own home is the ability under the 'DIY Housebuilders Scheme' to reclaim VAT on the building materials you have purchased. As long as you have built or converted the property with the intention of living in it as a main residence or holiday home then you are likely to be eligible for a VAT refund from HMRC.


Reclaiming VAT for clients in England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland. We can start the process no matter what stage your self build is at. For a professional, yet personal service contact us today.

We can't thank Wayne enough. The paperwork that was presented to HMRC was to a very high standard. We were kept up to date with correspondence. The work that was done for the money charged was worth every penny. They are also lovely people to deal with and make things simple for your claim.
