Yes we are VAT registered but listed buildings and other heritage assets are a vital part of our nation’s history and identity. However, the costs of preserving these important structures can be prohibitive. Thankfully, the government offers a range of tax reliefs to help owners meet the costs of conservation. This can make a significant difference to the overall cost of preservation, and it means that listed buildings and other heritage assets can be better protected for future generations. If you own a listed building or other heritage asset, make sure you take advantage of this valuable tax relief. . You can find out more here
