VAT in Europe - A Guide to Member States VAT Systems - 1 day training course in London

The European Union is a mix of Member States of different languages, economic success and social patterns which are drawn together to unite under one tax - Value Added Tax. Is this really the case? Does each Member State really enact VAT exactly as it says in the legislation and exactly in the same way as its neighbour? Where does Brexit leave the UK in relation to its neighbours?

This course is centred on the core EU VAT legislation, Directive 2006/112/EC (as updated and amended), and, importantly, also gives an insight into local practice within the Member States and the differences between them. An outline of the rules in each Member State is covered under the course content headings. Live updates will be made as the impact of Brexit unfolds.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is intended for those who need an in-depth knowledge of how VAT works across the European Union as a whole, and the differences between the Member States. A working knowledge of VAT is assumed.
