5% VAT Just for being Green!

Did you know that the VAT for making your home more energy efficient is only 5%?  Normal VAT is 17.5 % but the government as lowered the VAT on green items. You must install the items in order to get the tax break and it does not (sadly) cover all green items but it is still a step in the right direction. You are also able to check grants to put toward energy efficient works. For more information check out the HM Revenue & Customs link below
