Employment Law Update

Taxation Issues

Speaker: Liz Bridge, CECA Taxation Advisor

Liz Bridge will talk about the significant change to the VAT regime which is on the horizon for construction companies – Reverse Charge VAT which is due to be introduced in October 2019 but which will need significant upfront work by companies to adjust to this change.

She will also give a background on the forthcoming changes which are known as Making Tax Digital. Despite the boring title, this is a revolution in tax compliance and payment and will start within the next two years for most construction businesses.

Finally, Liz will pick up on a number of other issues which can impact on companies, including the payment of travel and lodging expenses, as well as other allowances.

Pensions and Occupational Health

Speaker: Andrew Percy of B & CE Pensions

Andrew will provide delegates with the latest developments in auto enrolment and how B & CE are introducing occupational health systems in the workplace.


The workshops are free to CECA Wales members although there will be a charge of £20 for non-attendance to cover the cost of catering. To reserve your place, please contact Deborah Gray.
