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.
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.
