This note provides information on specific VAT compliance and accounting issues that need to be considered by businesses supplying services that are liable to the reverse charge from 1 March 2021.
This note should be read in conjunction with the Domestic reverse charge ― supplies of building and construction services ― overview, Domestic reverse charge ― supplies of building and construction services ― further considerations and Domestic reverse charge ― accounting requirements guidance notes.

In these cases, the customer is responsible for notifying the supplier of their change in status, in order to enable the supplier to apply the correct VAT treatment going forward. The supplier is required to apply the revised VAT treatment from the time the customer notifies them of the change in circumstances.
If the change occurs during the invoicing period, the supplier can either:
change to the new treatment for the entire invoice period, or
change to the new treatment from the next invoicing period
The provision of building and construction services is usually treated as continuous supplies of services from a VAT perspective. As a result, it is normally the issue of an invoice that creates a tax point (it can be created by the receipt of payment if this occurs earlier). Also, under anti-avoidance provisions, there is an annual tax point if no invoices have been issued or payment received in the 12-month period. See the Buildings, construction and land ― tax points and invoicing guidance note for more information.

If supplies liable to the reverse charge span 1 March 2021, the following treatment should be applied:
