This paper reports on a research study of value‐added tax (VAT) that applies to new residential properties developed by developers who are registered for VAT purposes. The objective of the research was to compare the current VAT provisions relating to new housing in South Africa with those of the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Similarities and differences were determined and discussed. It was ascertained that the selected countries all have special rebates or concessions regarding new housing, whereas South Africa has none.
