Course contents

The VAT update is split into two sections: VAT update and common problem areas.

    Budget and Finance Act changes
  • New VAT legislation
  • VAT Case law
  • Tribunal decisions
  • New EU VAT rules and changes made by leaving the EU
  • VAT planning points.

The common VAT problem section will cover areas that are high-risk in preparing or advising on VAT issues. The exact contents are set about four weeks before the course date to ensure they are right up to date and will be shown on www.smarttraining.co.uk
