Purchase of commercial property then conversion to residential without paying VAT?
Am considering buying a commercial property that has VAT payable but want to convert to residential immediately. I was told that it is possible to avoid the VAT if the property is converted within a set timescale of two years or similar. Can anybody verify this and how/where can I find out more?
Thanks in advance!
