Whether or not you pay VAT depends on who buys the equipment. The current rules are:
- VAT on solar and battery storage for domestic properties is now 0% in Great Britain, provided the person or company purchasing the system is registered for VAT.
- The VAT exemption applies from now until 31 March 2027, unless the government formally extends or amends the legislation.
Therefore, if you purchase the system directly from us but are not registered for VAT (as most people aren’t), you will have to pay the VAT. However, if you arrange for a VAT-registered installer to purchase the system on your behalf, they can reclaim the VAT and pass the savings on to you.
If you use one of our recommended installers, we will design your system and work with the installer to arrange a site visit before your installation. This way, you can pay for your equipment and installation costs through your installer, allowing you to benefit from the VAT exemption.
If you purchase a system on behalf of a business, you can reclaim the VAT in the usual manner.
