VAT update and even more problem areas

Date: 17 October 2017 09:30 to 12:30

Type: Course, Tax

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

This session will include a fairly brief update on VAT changes in the last 12 months – there have been very few, followed by a detailed review of areas which cause problems in practice.

Course content will include:

  • VAT on land and property – the option to tax and input tax recovery
  • Supplies of food and catering – what are the rules now?
  • Tribunal cases on registration; disaggregation and similar issues
  • Moss returns – a quick look at the practical issues with screen grabs
  • Time of supply – when it poses an issue; basic taxpoint rules
  • Inaccuracy penalty – some examples
  • Partial exemption issues and illustrations

The course is suitable for members in practice who deal with VAT on a regular basis; it is also potentially suitable for members in business, particularly in the property and construction sector.
