FAQs: Am I Paying VAT On My Water Bill?

You are charged VAT on water services only.  For customers in categories 1 to 5 of the 1980 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) activity codes this is at the standard rate and will appear as an S on your bill.    

For all other customers, VAT is charged at zero rate.  This will appear as a Z on your bill.  Waste water charges are also charged at zero rate. For further information on SIC codes please click here
