Please take care. HMRC are approaching a number of scaffolding contractors and arguing that the supplies made to housebuilders cannot be wholly zero-rated.
They argue that some part of the charge to a housebuilder must be for the hire of the scaffold itself which must be standard-rated. It is not safe to completely zero-rate a housebuilding contract. The invoice should be apportioned between hire and erection/drop and each element separately charged to a different rate of VAT.
Alternatively the whole contract should bear standard- rate VAT which the housebuilder can recover in full.
