VAT Reverse Charge for Construction Services
Classroom: £269 +VAT per person
From 1st October 2019 there will be an overhaul of the VAT rules which apply to the construction sector, with the introduction of a new domestic reverse charge. The changes will mean that for certain supplies of construction services, the recipient rather than the supplier will account for the VAT. This represents a significant procedural change and it is crucial that organisations understand exactly how the reverse charge works and appreciate the added costs and resources required to apply it.
This comprehensive half-day course clearly explains how the reverse charge mechanism works and when it should be applied to construction services. It will demonstrate how the administration of the reverse charge works and how this in turn affects the VAT return. Attending the course will ensure you and your organisation are able to clearly understand and apply the new reverse charge for construction services.
The course has been designed and developed by an expert in this often confusing area of VAT - attending it will provide you with a clear picture of the changes and help you ensure that you can continue operating without making administrative errors.
