Gillingham Library Window Replacement

Straight after the festive season, Waller Glazing Services have started this library window installation. We were awarded the Gillingham Library window replacement project after being successful in Medway Council’s tendering process.

Gillingham Library Window Replacement

The existing wooden windows have seen better days and the decision was made by Medway Council to upgrade to uPVC which will improve both the look of the building and the thermal efficiency.

This is a three week project with little if no inconvenience being caused to the public or library staff.

Self Building VAT Rules

The VAT rules can be a bit tricky at the best of times and as a Building Contractor it can be very difficult to ascertain what rate of VAT should be charged to a client.  It can be zero-rated if a new build, a reduced rate of 5% for some conversions or renovations or a standard rate (currently 20%) depending on the circumstances.  Below are some guidelines on what to charge but please make sure you check with HMRC first.  Please note that this information specifically relates to newly qualifying dwellings created by self-builders. I hope the pointers when it comes to self building VAT rules are helpful.

 

WHAT VAT RATE TO CHARGE SELF-BUILDERS?

 

New Build Houses

When you are constructing a new dwelling this should be invoiced at a VAT rate of 0%.  New build houses are just that; a brand new domestic property built from scratch.  It can also include a replacement property but only if the previous building is completely removed (and that includes the footings & drainage!)

 

Conversions

When a non-residential building is converted into a qualifying dwelling, this should be invoiced at a reduced rate of 5%.  It needs to be a stand alone property and not linked to a main property (like a granny annexe)

 

Renovations

If a property has not been lived in for 2 years or more, renovation works on that domestic property can be invoiced at a reduced rate of 5%

 

Listed Buildings

I’ve written a previous Blog on this but basically, since 1st October, 2012, works on Listed Buildings is now charged out at the standard rate (currently 20%) and not zero rated as it used to be.  However, any of the rules listed above still apply

 

 

The main thing to remember is that you should only zero-rate or reduce-rate your work once you are satisfied that the project meets the criteria set out in the relevant section of Notice 708.  You also need to keep a copy of the Planning Permission, and any listed building consent or other evidence, with your records so you can demonstrate why the standard-rate of VAT was not charged.

Further information can be found at www.hmrc.gov.uk/notice708

New Three Year Contract

Hi Everyone. It has been nearly a year now since I started my new role here at Waller Services. I have gone from learning my daily tasks such as producing and processing invoices to being trusted with a large new, three year contract to run with the help of our Glazing Manager Paul.

My daily tasks for the contract are: booking surveys and installation times with residents for our operatives to carry out the specified works, as well as entering times, dates and costings of works finished to a live spread sheet that I share with the Optivo Team. At the end of each month a valuation of works completed is sent to Optivo for payment.

Atrium Roof Light Glass Replacement

Flat Roof Works at Tymberwood Academy Almost Completed

The roof works project at Tymberwood Academy in Gravesend has almost been completed. The Academy Trust is extremely pleased with the works undertaken and asked us to replace the glass in an atrium roof light. For more details for the atrium roof light glass replacement, continue reading.

Atrium Roof Light Glass Replacement

The glass that needed replacing was single glazing which resulted in heat loss during the winter and the sun made the room below extremley hot during the summer. Aditionally, when it rained the roof leaked into the room, it was time to change the glass. We replaced the single glazing with double glazed solar controlled glass. This means that the heat retention will be vastly improved during winter and the room will also stay cooler in the summer, and no leaks.

Waller Services Summer Works

This was my first year to experience the amount of Waller Services Summer Works being carried out over the school summer holidays.

During the 6 weeks, I noticed a considerable change to the workload but I have learned how important it is to organise and prioritise different jobs. Many tasks had to be put in place, such as stock material checks and subcontractor works to be ordered or sent out so that works could be carried out efficiently. I also had a lot of involvement in organising site visits for our operatives to survey different properties for window and door works.

We worked with over 30 schools during the summer holidays on both building and glazing projects.

Sittingbourne Community College Automated Gate Installation Kent

Waller Building Services has  just completed the Sittingbourne Community College automated gate installation kent project. The school wanted to make their reception area more secure.

Working closely with the school it was decided to install gates to the access points while still leaving ample parking for visitors. Bespoke fencing and gates where manufactured matching the existing fencing currently installed around the schools perimeter. Access control was added to provide easy access for staff members while visitors can talk directly to the schools receptionists via the integrated intercom.
