Free VAT events – Reverse charge on construction services

Important VAT Briefing

With effect from 1st October 2019, HMRC are introducing a major change to the way that VAT is to be accounted for on construction services.

Based on the definitions of what are construction services within the CIS rules, a domestic reverse charge will apply to most VAT registered contractors within a supply chain.

You can read more about the headline changes in our recent blog post HMRC issues news VAT reverse charge guidance.

TC Group is holding a series of free regional events to clients and all businesses that are likely to be impacted.


Who should attend

This new reverse charge will affect not only building contractors but also any VAT registered business acting in the capacity as contractor or sub-contractor for building work, whether or not it’s their normal activity.

It is also worthwhile for contract lawyers, architects, and other professionals involved in construction projects such as cost consultants.


Why should you attend

This will affect the way that VAT is invoiced and accounted for on construction services.

Accounting systems need to be updated to deal with the reverse charge and it could have an impact on cash-flow within a contractor’s business.

The reverse charge will have to be included within contracts and terms of business.
