VAT: domestic reverse charge for building and construction services
Notice 19-AO | 09 August 19
The way in which VAT is charged on construction services will change from 01 October 2019, as a result of new anti-fraud rules.
This will impact domestic supplies (UK Only) where payments are reported under the 'Construction Industry Scheme', more specifically supplies of services that are Standard Rate (20%) or Reduced Rate (5%).
Sage 200 Summer 2019 Enhancements release, available later this month, will allow customers in conjunction with third-party software to have a fuller compliance experience.
We recognise that not all customers will be in a position to upgrade, for a variety of scenarios we've prepared workarounds to enable your third-party software to maintain compliance, you can find out more here.
