VAT isn't payable on a residential dwelling. Do you mean stamp duty land tax? If a company buys a residential dwelling in the U.K. an extra 3% of the price is payable in stamp duty land tax. If an individual buys the house this tax doesn't apply as long as the individual doesn't own any other real estate worldwide. If they do then the same tax applies to them. So as long as your wife doesn't own any other property you can buy in her name. Your children are too young. There is no other way to avoid this liability. I hope that helps.
