July 2019

Our lead article looks at an important change for the construction industry: the introduction of the VAT domestic reverse charge. The charge takes effect from 1 October 2019, and will mean significant changes in invoicing and VAT return procedures for those involved.

The new rules apply to VAT-registered businesses where payments fall to be reported through the Construction Industry Scheme. Essentially, they put the onus on the recipient of construction services to account for VAT, rather than the business supplying those services. The measure is intended to reduce fraud within a high-risk sector. From a business perspective, there are considerable knock-on consequences, including reduction in cash flow where output tax is no longer charged. It is therefore important to take steps to prepare now.

In our other articles, we consider:

  • holiday pay issues for employers
  • better management for the farming business
  • workplace diversity
  • whether deferring state pension would work to your advantage.
