Do you need the Domestic Reverse Charge update?

With the Domestic Reverse Charge for building and construction services coming into force in October 2019, we have been working on a module to cater for this.

It is expected that the Domestic Reverse Charge will only affect a small number of our customers, however if it will affect you then please get in touch with us.

What is the Domestic Reverse Charge?

“The domestic reverse charge (referred to as the reverse charge) is a major change to the way VAT is collected in the building and construction industry.

“It comes into effect on 1 October 2019 and means the customer receiving the service will have to pay the VAT due to HMRC instead of paying the supplier.

“It will only apply to individuals or businesses registered for VAT in the UK (although it will not apply to consumers).

“This will affect you if you supply or receive specified services that are reported under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).”
