How much VAT will be charged on air conditioning installations?

Some good news from HMRC!

Red Airconditioning Limited are now able to offer air conditioning installations at zero rate VAT.

Following recent clarification, the old qualifying rules of either a test of social conditions or material content being greater than 60% have been scrapped by HMRC.

HMRC Have announced that replacing these tests until 31 March 2027 a zero rate applies to the installation of certain specified energy-saving materials including Fixed Air Source Heat Pumps.Despite the fact that the Chancellor did not mention air conditioning units in his statement, air conditioning can be categorised as a type of heat pump due to the fact that it serves a dual purpose. Air conditioning units make it possible for a home to be supplied with both hot and cold air, so heat pumps and air conditioning can be grouped together.

Fixed air source heat pumps functionally can be reversed so that they can draw heat from inside a building, thus providing cooling during the summer as well as indoor heating for colder periods of the year.

Only air source heat pumps that are permanently fixed and are not portable or moveable qualify as energy-saving materials, so any fixed installation that we carry out with indoor air control units and outdoor heat exchange unit will be zero rated.

Due to the fact that air conditioning is one of the products that are exempt from VAT, now is an excellent time to install a domestic air conditioning unit. Furthermore, because the scheme covers air conditioning units that can deliver either cold or hot air into the environment in which they are installed, the potential cost savings associated with these systems, in comparison to those associated with air source heat pumps, may make them one of the most cost-effective ways to maintain the ideal temperature in your home.
