VAT reverse charge is on its way for the construction industry. So what does this actually mean for your business? Due to come into force on 1 October 2020 (*Update – now delayed until 1 March 2021), it will have significant cash flow implications for those affected. 

Do you know if you are affected? Are you clear who in your supply chain will be affected too? Are you ready for this significant change? Do you have any manual processes when completing your VAT return? Can you estimate the impact on cash flow?
