What is the Home Renovation Incentive Scheme (HRI) ?
The HRI is a new revenue scheme which enable homeowners to claim tax relief on repairs, renovations or improvement work that is carried out on their homes by tax compliant contractors and is subject to 13.5% VAT.
If you are a homeowner, you may claim for qualifying work that was carried out and paid for from 25 October 2013. If you are a landlord, you may claim for work carried out and paid for from 15 October 2014. If you are a local authority tenant you may claim for work carried out and paid for from 1 January 2017.
You cannot claim for any work carried out or paid for after 31 December 2018.
The only exception to this closing date is if planning permission is required for the work. If this is in place by 31 December 2018, you can claim for work carried out and paid for up to 31 March 2019.
