Is the treatment of VAT on RCAs proving to be taxing?

A White Paper by EK Reinstatement Cost Assessments

Read our White Paper on RCA VAT Treatment here.

In recent years, one of the most talked about aspects of reinstatement cost assessments (otherwise known as insurance valuations) has been the subject of VAT. Should VAT be included in the surveyor’s calculations, and why is it a contentious issue?

In this white paper, I look at the applicability of VAT in a residential block of flats scenario, from the point of view of a block manager aiming to do the right thing by their client.

EK Reinstatement Cost Assessments’ view is that VAT should be included, and this paper explains why.
