French Duncan – Domestic Reverse Charge for Construction Services
A new Statutory Instrument will introduce the domestic reverse charge into UK legislation via VATA 1994 s55A to relevant supplies of construction services with effect from 1 October 2019.
The reverse charge only applies to business to business transactions, where the customer is registered for VAT and is required to report the relevant supplies through the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). The services only apply to standard and reduced rate supplies; the rules do not apply to zero rated supplies.
