Buyers of construction work must file reports on their contracts

Construction work reports must give details on all the contracts the buyer has made. If you have made a contract that exceeds €15,000 in value, you must file the report. Such a contract may cover more than one building site. Every order that you as the buyer (customer) make is treated as a specific contract if a separate payment to the contractor has been agreed upon.  Billing may be based on a fixed sum total or on hours worked.

Reports must be filed by the fifth day of the second month following the reporting month. For example, the details regarding July must be reported by 5 September. They must be filed electronically.
