New Property Homeowners Can Get VAT Exempt Water Softeners

Thursday, July 25, 2019

Here’s an important announcement for anyone who is just about to move into a brand new home. If the property has yet to be signed off, then if you choose to have a water softener installed before that happens, you’ll basically save yourself 20% on the cost.

That’s because water softeners are classed as white goods, which are eligible for VAT exemption on new builds.

Moving into a brand new property is always an eagerly awaited event – so why not take full advantage and go for a high quality, energy saving water softener at the same time.

If you aren’t sure how to claim back your 20% VAT exemption, don’t worry. We can help you with all the paperwork.

For further information or to book your installation time, call SJ Water Softeners today on 01243 957274 or email or scott@sjbs.info
