I have a vacant disused warehouse. I have received planning permission to convert into three dwellings. The current floor space is over two stories is 300m2. A new third floor is being added increasing the floor space to 399m2
My question is as my net gain is just under 100m2 gain am I exempt from paying CIL tax?
Also as this is renovating the existing building does this also give me a 100% CIL tax exemption as it is not a new build or will have to pay £/m2 CIL tax on the whole all the 399m2 floorspace regardless?
I am not going to ask my council as last year they tried to bill me 9k CIL tax I argued the case in point and they eventually were proved to be wrong and they backed down. It made me realise I could have handed them over 9k for nothing!
Therefore I want to get this 100% right before I agree to pay them anything.
