VAT Training

VAT is crucial to any business and it is important that staff dealing with the tax are aware of the full implications.  A business cannot properly budget or agree deals unless they are aware of the VAT impact.  Unfortunately, VAT is a complex tax, especially in certain areas which we recognise and focus on.  An unexpected VAT issue can be a deal-breaker.

These training sessions aim to highlight areas of risk and provide a practical review of common problems.

Who is the course for?

Anybody who is responsible for the VAT activities of a business, completes VAT returns, or assists with transactions in any way and, has a basic understanding of VAT.  We can provide training to one or two people or to entire departments.

What do the courses cover?

The training assumes a degree of VAT knowledge and can be tailored to a business specific needs.  We are very flexible on subject matter and will present training that ideally matches your requirements.  However, experience insists that certain subjects provide common VAT difficulties.
