Construction Industry Tax - Please check guidelines on payment of Construction Industry Tax. The scheme requires a tax deduction to be made by a contractor when making a payment to a sub-contractor for work that comes within the scope of the scheme.
This best-practice guidance provides guidance on: local arrangements; key considerations; linking strategic commissioning and procurement; effective involvement of people who use care services and their carers with service providers; and specific guidance for use where a public body is procuring a care and support services.
This Best-practice guidance updates and replaces the 2010 ‘Procurement of Care and Support Services’ guidance to reflect the changes to the national procurement rules as a result of 2014 European Procurement Directives, the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 and implementing regulations.
It complements the statutory guidance published under the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 which principally covers the main legal rules applying to the procurement of health or social services, including care and support services.
