HMRC has been focussing on professional practices and as a result, some severe penalties have been issued. Recent court decisions and forthcoming changes to international services rules make it increasingly challenging to avoid unnecessary VAT costs to your firm and your clients.

Our seminar is designed to cover the key aspects of VAT affecting your profession with the objective of challenging established practice and giving delegates the confidence to deal with their own VAT affairs.

In particular we will cover:

  • the new guidance on land related services and why this matters
  • understanding when reverse charges apply when working with associates overseas
  • where is your client located? How recent cases may cause you to reconsider this
  • services provided over the internet, how will the new 2015 rules affect you?
  • helping your client recover VAT, what the recent Airtours and BAA decisions teach us about engagement terms
  • disbursements, how to avoid unnecessary cost for your client
  • business entertainment, is VAT ever recoverable?
  • VAT relating specifically to partnership tax returns and the nuances of the Mundays LLP case
  • are your firm’s services exempt from VAT, and what are the consequences?

The seminar will be led by Arthur Blackburn, Head of VAT at Crowe Clark Whitehill. Arthur has many years’ experience in working with professional practices.
