Capital Goods Scheme (CGS)

Capital Goods Scheme (CGS) is a mechanism for regulating the amount of Value-Added Tax (VAT) reclaimed over the VAT-life (adjustment period) of a capital good. For VAT purposes a capital good is a developed property.

The scheme operates by ensuring that the VAT reclaimed reflects the use to which the property is put over its VAT-life.
