VAT and CIS: the Reverse Charge on construction services for Local Authorities, their companies, joint ventures and social enterprises
On 1 October 2019, there will be a major change in the way local authorities, the NHS, and their associated companies must deal with VAT on construction services.  Officers will need a knowledge of both VAT and the Construction Industry Scheme (“CIS”) to ensure their organisations are compliant.  To be compliant, among other things, Officers will need knowledge about the supplier’s business status, the VAT rate of the supply, the CIS status of the supplier and the services, and how the reverse charge should be applied. 
Although the new regime is an anti-avoidance measure targeting the private sector, it will have a major effect on local authorities, the NHS, and their associated companies. They will have to carry out the reverse charge or notify suppliers that it does not apply. There is no “do-nothing” option and getting it wrong could give rise to penalties. 
The seminar will be hosted by CRS VAT and PSTAX. CRS VAT is a leading provider of high quality VAT services to the NHS, and PSTAX is the leading taxation advisor to local authorities with a unique “all-taxes” advisory service. 
CRS VAT and PSTAX are ideally placed to give delegates a comprehensive understanding of how the new legislation will affect the construction activities of local authorities, the NHS, and their companies.
