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.

As part of our commitment to ensure our valued clients are both educated about and comfortable with the proposed changes, Aston Shaw is joining forces with New Anglia Growth Hub and NatWest to host this free-to-attend seminar to explain in layman’s terms what will be changing and how you can take steps to not just comply with, but take advantage of, the new rules.
