Course description

VAt and International Services

VAT and International Services - 1 Day Programme in London

Not all services are the same. There are different place of supply rules for different services. Sometimes this means that a UK supplier should not charge VAT. Sometimes it means that the supplier must register for VAT in another country. We also know that the line between one type of service and another is very fine, and that different VAT implications follow accordingly. This course explores all the VAT rules for all international services supplied from the UK to customers anywhere in the world, and the impact of importing services from outside the UK, to give the delegate a sound grasp of all aspects. As UK legislation is driven by EU legislation, any changes caused by Brexit will be incorporated live when the course is run. A good knowledge of the basic rules of VAT is assumed.

Suitability - Who should attend?

It is intended for anyone responsible for the VAT affairs of an organisation which supplies or receives services to or from customers outside the UK, or which does work abroad, and their advisers.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

CPD 6 hours
