If you are an end user or intermediate supplier, it is a legal requirement that you inform your sub-contractors in writing in order to be excluded from the reverse charge.

Last year, the start date was postponed to 1 March 2021 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the construction sector. It is unlikely that this will be postponed again so all VAT registered businesses in the construction sector need to be ready for 1 March. There’s more information about the legislation here.
