Charging VAT in the CIS: Make sure you are compliant

As you may have heard, HMRC on Friday 6th September decided to defer the introduction of the CIS Reverse Charge for VAT until 1 October, 2020 – a full 12 months deferment.

For this reason, we have decided to reschedule the event below until mid-2020.

Watch out nearer the time for details of where and when it will be held.

If you work in the Construction Industry under ‘CIS’ and are VAT registered under the new ‘domestic reverse charge for VAT’, then this event is for you.

As you may have heard, HMRC are introducing the Reverse Charge for Constructions Services from 1 October 2019. This is the HMRC approach to counteracting fraudulent VAT reclaims.

Find out from leading CIS expert, Neil Owen, what this means for your business and the way you invoice your customers, and pay your suppliers.

Hear from Neil about:

1. When and when not to charge VAT on your CIS work
2. The new rules starting 1 October 2019 for VAT registered business working under CIS
3. Expected changes which include ‘zero rating’ VAT on invoices and the possible cash flow implications that will result from this
