UPDATE 10/09/2019: The government has agreed to delay the implementation of domestic reverse charge VAT for construction services by a year, until October 2020. See more.
As of October 2020 (new extended date) those working in the UK’s construction industry might have to handle and pay VAT in a different way following the introduction of the new VAT reverse charge system for the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). For supplies of certain specified construction services, the customer will be liable to account to HMRC for the VAT for these purchases instead of the supplier. The reverse charge will include goods, where those goods are supplied with the specified services.
Affected Sage 200 customers are able to contact us now to book their upgrade to Sage 200 2019 Summer Enhancements to be ready well in advance, or be mindful that Sage 200 is updated seasonally four times per year and to get in touch well before 1st Oct 2020 to upgrade to the latest version available at the time.
Notes: For full compliance with the CIS, you will need to use a third-party CIS module for Sage 200c. CIS is only applicable for companies in the UK, and not Ireland.
