Description

VAT on property is a notoriously tricky area of tax law, and one in which mistakes can prove to be very costly. This new edition of VAT on Property: Law and Practice by Dermot O'Brien and Gabrielle Dillon spells out the VAT pitfalls to be avoided and the related opportunities that are available for all players in the property scene: developers, investors/landlords, tenants, vendors or purchasers.

Legislation governing the application of VAT to property transactions changed fundamentally in 2008. The first edition of this book was published in 2009. The years following saw a significant reduction in the number and value of property transactions. Since then, economic conditions in Ireland have improved and this has fostered a resurgent property market. This fact, and the introduction of the Value-Added Tax Consolidation Act 2010, prompted demand for an up-to-date commentary on VAT law and practice applying to property transactions. This second edition is designed to satisfy that demand.

VAT on Property: Law and Practice is an invaluable guide for anybody engaged in, or advising on, property transactions. VAT on property is a notoriously tricky area of tax law, and one in which mistakes can prove to be very costly. This book spells out the VAT pitfalls to be avoided and the related opportunities that are available for all players in the property scene: developers, investors/landlords, tenants, vendors or purchasers. Written in a reader-friendly style and avoiding overly technical language when possible, this book contains many practical examples, several of which are drawn from the authors’ experience of complex issues that they encounter in their professional practice.
