August 30, 2019

From the 1st October 2019 the way the construction industry charges VAT is undergoing a major change. HMRC’s “Domestic Reverse Charge” will affect VAT-registered individuals, businesses and companies and is likely to have a significant impact on their cash flow. With cash flow being the predominant factor of the success and failure of any business in the construction industry, it is imperative that businesses are not caught unprepared.
