Cork House Extension

Home Renovation Incentive Scheme

Valid until the end of 2018, the Home Renovation Incentive allows people to claim up to €4,050 back in VAT on up to €30,000 of the cost of domestic building works, such as house extensions or attic conversions. The building work must be carried out by a qualifying contractor and completed and paid before the 31st of December 2018. Exceptions to this are projects requiring planning permission, which as long as the planning permission is in place by the 31st December 2018, you have until the 31st of March 2019 to complete the work, another three months, which is the standard duration of a domestic home extension build.
